Book Description

Nov. 1 2008 Scribe Short Books
Brave and controversial, this philosophical study argues against extremist religions, contending that many radical doctrines stem from the same basic roots of fear, misery, and delusion. Citing numerous statistics, this survey shows that traditional faith and belief in a higher power retains strong support the world over, from the United States and Nigeria to Indonesia and Ireland. The revival of Orthodoxy in Russia and Eastern Europe is also discussed, as well as the religious stirrings in atheistic China, the growth of extreme Hindu nationalism in India, and the appeal of Islamic fundamentalism.

Product Description

Review

"A polemic with a compelling psychological bent."  —Nexus


"While the related offerings of Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens may have the edge for flair and accessibility, Pataki gets the prize for focused inquiry."  —Time magazine


"As a polemic on the evils of religion, this brief book deserves to be as widely read as Sam Harris's recent Letter to a Christian Nation . . . Pataki punches with precision, punctures fallacies with elegant jabs."  —Canberra Times


"[Pataki] writes as a scholar, with careful and qualified argument."  —The Age
