4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting mix of personal journey and the history of Christianity and non belief, 21 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: All in the Mind: A Farewell to God (Paperback)
Ludovic Kennedy gives his reasoning as to why he thinks religious belief is all in the mind. Along the way he details not scientific or deep philosophical arguments, but bases his ideas on a fairly common sense rational review of the Bible and subsequent history of both Christianity and non belief right up to the late 20th century. I was less interested in the Bible accounts he retells, but his subsequent history was an interesting sweep of religious thinking over the centuries and certainly introduced one or two freethinkers as well as theologians I didn't know about or hadn't come across recently. The medieval history of the church is especially gruesome. He is obviously someone very acquainted with the UK mainline churches and European church history. He challenges the view that there is any evidence of non believers being less moral, and sets out the case for religious experience being replaced in our enjoyment in sport, poetry or arts. All in all a great read for those who want to think about non belief and Christianity in history, that is readable and not technical \ metaphysical.
