Religion for Atheists: A Non-Believer's Guide to the Uses of Religion

by Alain de Botton - £10.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141046310 | ISBN 10: 0141046317

Alain de Botton's Religion for Atheists looks at the God debate with fresh eyes.
 
All of us, whether religious, agnostic or atheist, are searching for meaning. And in this wise and life-affirming book, non-believer Alain de Botton both rejects the supernatural claims of religion and points out just how many good ideas they sometimes have about how we should live.
 
And he suggests that non-believers can learn and steal from them.
 
Picking and choosing from the thousands of years of advice assembled by the world's great religions to get practical insights on art, community, love, friendship, work, life and death, Alain de Botton shows us a range of fascinating ideas on a range of topics, including relationships, work, culture, love and death - and that could be of use to all of us, irrespective of whether we do or don't believe. In the Sunday Times top-ten bestseller Religion for Atheists, Alain de Botton takes us one step further than Dawkins and Hitchens have ventured and into a world of ideas beyond the God debate . . .
