Great thinking + great writing = a great book,
This review is from: In Defence of Atheism: The Case Against Christianity, Judaism and Islam (Hardcover)
If you are already inclined to an atheistic/naturalistic view of the world this book will bolster your current outlook and reassure you that you are, indeed, right.
Onfray's 'de-construction' of Islam, Christianity and Judaism is pretty thorough and it paves the way for his suggested 'next step'.
Surprisingly he feels that the current secularism of the west doesn't go far enough. He observes that we are still very much aligned to the ethics of the Judeo-Christian past and modern tolerance and acceptance of 'all religions equally' is not - and must not be - the final position.
I enjoyed this book very much and I'm sure that if you long for the day when superstition, fear and fable has no place in the minds of men and women, you'll enjoy it too.
