It does not rant or even criticize religion, except for obvious evils such as the persecution of witches (even there the focus is on understanding why it happened rather than complaining about it). The tone is touched with wit and occasionally borders on irony for example in the referring to the tendency of predictions of the end of the world to be adjusted after the world failed to end. Overall I wouldn't expect devoutly religious readers to enjoy the book. For atheists interested in the specific questions it addresses, it is undoubtedly a brilliant read, full of intelligence and insight.
If you use audible, I recommend the audio version, which is superbly read.
There is a lot covered in what is quite a short book of 238 pages, so inevitably some of the exploration is quite brief. This is a very enjoyable book though, writen with style and gentle wit, and is also very informative without being patronising in any way.
One small thing to note is that this is not really a hard back book - there is no dustcover and the covers are quite bendy - almost like a paperback.
Well worth reading though
