New Book on Intelligent Design

Blackwell Updates today contains a book on ID that looks somewhat interesting, but a little suspect.  The interesting part is that the author actually seems to consider Dembski rather than Morris/Gish/Ham-type people, the suspect part comes from blurbs like this:

""Sarkar's scientific expositions and dissections of Dembski's specious arguments and Behe's lack of imagination are clear, surgical, and authoritative. For those who would fear a return to the midd…"

There doesn't appear to be a way to see the rest of the quote but (using methods outlined in Dembski's Design Inference) I infer that "midd…" is the beginning of the phrase "middle ages" and so I think all that review needed to read was the table of contents.

That table of contents is on the Blackwell site here

(Bleg: I am entirely unfamiliar with this author.  Does anyone know anything about him.)

    I believe the text says, “back to middle earth.”
