5.0 out of 5 stars A thought provoking definition and exploration of our 'secular' society, 27 Jan. 2008
By 
This review is from: A Short History of Secularism (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this book. It is easy to read, it flows well and makes
a lot of interesting points. Its aim is to make you think in new ways
about secularism and its place in our society. This it does - it made
me think again about what we mean by secularism. What do we mean when
we say the West is secular? What is the place of religion and in
particular belief in God in our society?

There is a question of whether it really does what it says on the tin.
I read the synopsis of the book on the web site and the reviews from
professors and this gives you a good idea of what the book is about. It
is not a book about atheism but then as it says when we say society is
secular we don't really mean it is atheist - it is more complicated than
that. The book helped me understand this - and what people mean when
they say they believe in God or call themselves Christian.

I would recommend the book wholeheartedly, it will stimulate a lot of
thought and debate. Good stuff!
