Faith in God in the modern world: A reaction to Du Toit, Dawkins and their fellows

The central question in this research is whether it is possible to still believe in God in the light of scientific and other observations. Special attention is given to the works of Du Toit and Dawkins who are of the opinion that belief in God is obsolete. The theoretical framework is to theologically engage the stated views and evaluate it. The reply to the views of Dawkins and  Du Toit by theologians such as McGrath, Brummer, Durand, Van de Beek, Van de Brink and others is presented. Deep reflection on the challenges posed by especially the theory of evolution, but also the way in which God is presented in the Bible, is conceived. The most important finding is that it is still logical and rational to believe in God.
