This review is from: Religion for Atheists: A non-believer's guide to the uses of religion (Hardcover)
I don't usually write reviews but felt compelled to now as I absolutely loved this book. It's erudite, witty, imaginative and packed with great ideas. I'm an atheist who has often been drawn to aspects of religion, but couldn't really articulate why. In clear, illuminating prose, this wonderful book has explained what the attractions of religion might be for the likes of me and also given me loads of food for thought. It's also a very human book and ultimately very consoling.

Quite right Pedro, but you're dealing wiht popular culture here and in that realm, "critical" always means "adverse". Erz

I believe this book would be helpful to "Jesusites" (to use Philip Pullman's word) and Sea of Faith members - see my review in the June 2012 edition of their magazine "Sofia". David.
