Book Overview

"What if religions are neither all true nor all nonsense?" The long-running and often boring debate between fundamentalist believers and non-believers is finally moved forward by Alain de Botton s inspiring new book, which boldly argues that the supernatural claims of religion are entirely false but that it still has some very important things to teach the secular world. 
"Religion for Atheists "suggests that rather than mocking religion, agnostics and atheists should instead steal from it because the world s religions are packed with good ideas on how we might live and arrange our societies. Blending deep respect with total impiety, de Botton (a non-believer himself)proposes that we look to religion for insights into how to, among other concerns, build a sense of community, make our relationships last, overcome feelings of envy and inadequacy, inspire travel and reconnect with the natural world. 
For too long non-believers have faced a stark choice between either swallowing some peculiar doctrines or doing away with a range of consoling and beautiful rituals and ideas. At last, in "Religion for Atheists, " Alain de Botton has fashioned a far more interesting and truly helpful alternative."
