5.0 out of 5 stars Rational thought on religion
Chris Hedges takes a different approach in the debate between atheists and believers, he avoids dogma and cuts through the false assumptions made by both atheists and religious fundamentalists. Indeed he treats them both as opposite sides of one coin and points out the errors they have in common. This book is refreshingly free of dogma and is a good read for people of...

2.0 out of 5 stars God is dead. Get over it
Silly title. I see an atheist in the mirror every day, but who has seen God? Titled When Atheism Becomes Religion in the US. Crusade would have been more accurate, if less bankable

Chris Hedges takes a different approach in the debate between atheists and believers, he avoids dogma and cuts through the false assumptions made by both atheists and religious fundamentalists. Indeed he treats them both as opposite sides of one coin and points out the errors they have in common. This book is refreshingly free of dogma and is a good read for people of many traditions.

5.0 out of 5 stars On the rise of fundamentalist atheism, 28 July 2008
By 
M.I.Ahmad (Scotland, UK) - See all my reviews
Chris Hedges offers an erudite, eloquent and expansive riposte to the banal offerings of the New Atheists. Parsing through the culture talk that much of the New Atheist critique of religion, in particular Islam, comprises of, Hedges situates the actions in their historical and political contexts, and through ample illustrations challenges the notion of moral progress. In striking contrast to the anti-intellectual platitudes of the New Atheists, Hedges crafts his arguments with admirable intellectual rigour and philosophical depth. This book is a much needed antidote to the apologia for imperialism and the extremism and bigotry that has been peddled by the likes of Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris disguised as a defence of science and reason. As Hedges points out, what they champion is not science, but the cult of science.
