God And The New Atheism

Full Product Description

In God and the New Atheism, John F. Haught gives clear, concise, and compelling answers to the charges against religion laid out in recent best-selling books by Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion), Sam Harris (The End of Faith), and Christopher Hitchens (God is not Great).

For some, these “new atheists” appear to say extremely well what they believe to be wrong with religion. But, as John Haught shows, the treatment of religion in these books is riddled with logical inconsistencies, shallow misconceptions, and crude generalisations.

Can God really be dismissed as a mere delusion? Is faith really the enemy of reason? And does religion really poison everything?

“Challenging and serious,…Haught lays out the fundamental issues clearly and without the vitriol that has characterised Hitchens et al. as well as many of their interlocutors.” Publishers Weekly
