This review is from: The God Argument: The Case Against Religion and for Humanism (Hardcover)
Those who believe religion has done more to damage than to benefit civilisation will find their conclusion convincingly vindicated by this book, whilst agnostics will surely be converted by it to atheism. Apologists for religion, if persuaded to read it, would find every argument for their belief in a supreme omniscient being, even the much admired faith, utterly demolished. At the same time, they would be shown how we can have the positive aspects of religion without its "divisions, hatreds and torment" through humanism. The lessons of this book could have profound benefit for mankind if absorbed properly. A.C.Grayling should be essential reading, especially for those concerned with educating the next generation.
