The New York Times bestselling author speaks out against those who attack religion to advance their own agenda: global capitalism, intolerance, and imperial projects.

There are two radical and dangerous sides to the debate on faith and religion in America: Christian fundamentalists, who see religious faith as their exclusive prerogative, and New Atheists, who brand all religious belief as irrational. Too often, the religious majority—those committed to tolerance and compassion as well as their faith—are caught in the middle.

Chris Hedges critiques the mindset that rages against religion and faith. He accuses the New Atheists—led by Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and Christopher Hitchens—of promoting a belief system that is not, as they claim, based on reason and science, but on a simplified worldview of us vs. them, intolerance toward behaviors that are not understood, and the false myths of human progress and moral superiority. Ultimately, he makes way for new, moderate voices to join the debate. A timely, compelling work for anyone who wants to understand the true state of the battle about faith today.

    " Vintage Hedges confronting the silliness of the New Atheism. "

    " If there's one non-fiction writer in the US we should be reading, it's Hedges. Even since "War is a Force that Gives Us Meaning," Hedges has been turning out important books about the world today. In this one he squashes the arguments of Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and others who say there is no God. When you're finished with this book you will want to also read, "What Every Person Should Know About War," "Losing Moses on the Freeway," "American Fascists," and "The Ten Commandments in America." "

    " Amazing book - very thought provoking. "

    " Hodges makes some good points, but is way off base on so many others. His reduction of atheists Harris, Hitchens, and Dawkins often seems as reductionist as the atheists are of Christianity and Islam. I long for a book that treats these subjects with more respect and less dogmatism. I am grateful for hedges' remarks on Joseph Conrad's realism on the savage streak in human nature, something we ignore to our peril. "
