I am an athiest/agnositc. I also beleive in hearing all sides of a debate or discussion and thinking through the arguments. How you should approach this book will depend on the type of audience you are.
If your a christian...
This book has a lot of cheer leading for you. However don't assume this is the perfect argument to bring athiests to the church pews. It's not. There are many statements the author claims are scientific facts that just aren't. The general direction of the author's argument is not going to appeal to a non-beleiver. I would not use this as a guide to converting athiests.

There is a lot to laugh at in this book. The author's grasp of scientific knowledge is light, enough to sound smart to the unschooled. I found the first half of the book more compelling than the second half. The second half goes into scripture a lot and he assumes you will see the wisdom and truth in it where there just isn't any. The author does kind of make a point we athiests should take to heart. Some athiests of the more militant kind cannot see the comfort and wisdom that religion provides many people. My mother needs faith like a fish needs water. No amount of reason is going to stop that. I love Dawkins books on science but he is a bit harsh with believers, which causes the faithfull to double down. We can appreciate the wisdom of Luke 6:31, do unto others as you would have them do to you, even if we don't beleive in the magic man in the sky.

scientific evidence towards God's existence using modern theories and data to back up the claim. I encourage everyone to seek out the information and put this book to the test. Good wine every time.
I recommend this book to all those who have deep feeling that they know the truth of the Christian gospel is objectively true. And for those who need to sharpen their arguments.
