Outgrowing Dawkins

Today's Price £10.57

Product Description

In his new book Outgrowing God, Richard Dawkins purports to demolish the claims of mainstream religion, starting with belief in a Creator. All of life's big questions can apparently be answered by science.

But does he even understand what he rejects? Rupert Shortt's answer in Outgrowing Dawkins is a resounding 'No'. The high priest of New Atheism quite literally doesn't know what he's talking about, because the deity he rejects is a childish parody. From this flow many further muddles and straw man arguments. Shortt's incisive rebuttal includes positive suggestions for advancing an often sterile debate.

A timely and succinct critique of Dawkins' latest book, exposing the main flaws in his vision, including his weakness for soft targets and crude caricatures, his philosophical illiteracy and other mistakes and muddles.

Rupert Shortt is Religion Editor of the Times Literary Supplement and a former Visiting Fellow at Oxford University. His recent books include Benedict XVI (2005), Christianophobia: A Faith under Attack (2012), God is No Thing: Cohere... (2015) and Does Religion Do More Harm than Good? (2019).
