A preeminent scientist -- and the world's most prominent atheist -- asserts the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm religion has inflicted on society, from the Crusades to 9/11. With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry, and abuses children, buttressing his points with historical and contemporary evidence. The God Delusion makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just wrong but potentially deadly. It also offers exhilarating insight into the advantages of atheism to the individual and society, not the least of which is a clearer, truer appreciation of the universe's wonders than any faith could ever muster.

The God Delusion caused a sensation when it was published in 2006. Within weeks it became the most hotly debated topic, with Dawkins himself branded as either saint or sinner for presenting his hard-hitting, impassioned rebuttal of religion of all types. His argument could hardly be more topical. While Europe is becoming increasingly secularized, the rise of religious fundamentalism, whether in the Middle East or Middle America, is dramatically and dangerously dividing opinion around the world. In America, and elsewhere, a vigorous dispute between 'intelligent design' and Darwinism is seriously undermining and restricting the teaching of science. In many countries religious dogma from medieval times still serves to abuse basic human rights such as women's and gay rights. And all from a belief in a God whose existence lacks evidence of any kind. Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry and abuses children. The God Delusion is a brilliantly argued, fascinating polemic that will be required reading for anyone interested in this most emotional and important subject.

Read Fortress Press's interview with Richard Grigg, only on fortressforum.com! It is ironic but true that most theologians do not understand Godin the same way that is being criticized so heavily in such worksas Richard Dawkins's The God Delusion. In fact, argues RichardGrigg, most theologians left behind an unalloyed, classical theismabout two hundred years ago. Yet, Grigg argues, the many efforts to reconcile contemporaryscientific worldviews with Christian faith stop shy of the radicalreconception of God begun in contemporary theology andmade necessary by contemporary science. Grigg's erudite andprovocative book calls for a more radical theology, in whichnotions of divine transcendence and immanence, personhood,power, and the divine role in the evolving universe are radicalizedand reconceived. Building on the work of such theologians asSallie McFague and Gordon Kaufman, and with a strong grasp ofthe particulars of contemporary cosmology and biology, Grigg'sexciting work challenges us to an intellectual honesty as sturdy asour faith.
