Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling author, Chris Hedges, 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.

"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.""

    " 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. "

    " Hedges was able to pick out every unfavorable aspect of both religion and science. Addresses important issues and very thought provoking but I ended the book feeling a bit depressed. "

    " He starts many of his arguments with undefended sweeping generalizations which I resent, but the most interesting topics, he fully explains his starting premises. "

    " While I learned somethings, I think the "New Athiests" aren't as huge of a threat as the American religious right, though he makes a point of the disturbing things that come out of the mouth's of some of these people. "

    " This book was welcome reading after I had been reading and exploring atheism. I was thoroughly depressed by atheism and this was a great pick-me-up. It also turned me on to Chris Hedges columns at Truthdig.com "

    " Previous published as Why I don't believe in Athiests, this book is intoxicating. Chris Hedges has got to have one of the sexiest brains on the planet. He is the standard for critical thinking. I could hardly put it down. I can't wait to read another by him. "

    " This book is much less a polemic on atheism (or even new atheism), and much more about the problems inherent in utopianism and moral progressivism. It is an extremely thought provoking read, and brings up a multitude of questions about belief, progressivism, and teleology. "

    " i have only read the prologue and a quarter of the first chapter. this book has already put me in a trance. i'm actually taking notes as i read it. taking notes. i'm thinking about writing an essay when i finish it. i already HIGHLY recommend this book. "

    " I will plow through it but have found his "over-reaching" much like the title...Cutesy confusion of concepts to make complete (and faulty) analogies out of superficial comparisons. Yes, some atheists are strongly opinionated..as are fundamentalists Christians...so ? "
