An Intelligent Person's Guide to Religion Hardback


We live, allegedly, in a 'post-modern' age: modernity cast aside the narrative fantasies of the pre-modern era, and now it has itself been exposed as a cruel illusion.

Reason is a myth, and science is a threat. If post-modernity represents the final abandonment of all 'grand theories', how stands religion?

It is viewed as a particularly unbelievable form of explanation.

Yet its power to effect social and political change is undeniable.

Religion as a form of challenge to established order is acceptable; religion as a Divine instrument of salvation is regarded as outmoded.

Against this backdrop, the author argues that religion without God is like a car without an engine: it isn't going anywhere.

Drawing on many aspects of human culture he offers a defence of religion as not only credible but necessary.
