Religion can be both inspiring and distressing. Many critiques of it are simultaneously compelling and dubious. Shay examines atheist arguments with a refreshing modern eye in this comprehensive look at our most fundamental questions about faith and reason.
Prominent atheists claim the Bible is a racist text. Yet Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., read it daily. Then again, so did many ardent segregationists. Some atheists claim religion serves to oppress the masses. Yet the classic text of the French Revolution, What Is the Third Estate?, was written by a priest. On the other hand, the revolutionaries ended up banning religion. What do we make of religion’s confusing role in history?
And what of religion’s relationship to science? Some scientists claim we have no free will. Others argue that advances in neurobiology and physics disprove determinism. As for whispering to the universe, an absurd habit, say the skeptics. Yet prayer is a transformative practice for millions.
This audiobook explores the most common atheist critiques of the Bible and religion, incorporating Jewish, Christian, and Muslim voices. The result is a fresh, modern reevaluation of religion and of atheism.
