Product description


A lucid, informative and admirably accessible account of the atheist-secular-humanist position (New Statesman)

Precise and incisive . Mr Grayling is a talented apologist. His brand of humanism comes across as sensible, reasonable and characterized by generosity of spirit that is often absent from religious structures, many of which involve compiling lists of what is forbidden and dreaming up creatively horrendous punishments for those who fall short (Economist)

A calm and intelligent look at different religions and their various arguments for the existence of their gods (Daily Mail)

Grayling writes with clarity, elegance and the occasional aphoristic twist ... straight alpha material (Independent on Towards The Light)

There is an immense depth of human wisdom on display here, and five minutes with any passage will have you contemplating all day (Independent on The Good Book)

Undeniably thought-provoking (The Sunday Times)

Professor Grayling himself neatly exemplifies the values of calm rationality which are at the heart of Stoicism, and which influenced early Christian thought (Church Times)

Debunks the teleological, ontological and cosmological arguments employed throughout Christendom for the literal existence of God . Those looking for a succinct analysis of these centuries old debates will appreciate Grayling's insights (Washington Post)

Book Description

The first book to deal with all the arguments against religion and, equally important, to put forward an alternative - humanism
