Product Description

Review

School Library Journal
This book addresses a number of thought-provoking questions and offers several paragraphs of commentary for each one.There are no definitive answers here. Baggini encourages youngsters to think about questions such as "Can we prove God exists?" and "Why would God allow evil?" and to develop their own ideas and critical-thinking abilities. . . . The bright, modernist cartoon illustrations lighten the heavy subject and provide humorous asides throughout. . . . This is an excellent title for sparking conversation and inspiring personal philosophizing.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have been hunting for a book to introduce my daughter to the topic of differently religions and faiths, and this one has been the best. It is not a listing of different religions, but more of a book of topics about the nature of religion. Questions such as why are there different kinds of the same religion, the paradox of omnipotence/omniscience, could God be female, could a God be evil, etc. A great book for questioning and opening minds to possibilities and philosophical questions. Geared towards a pre-teen (9/10/11) audience, although both younger and old would probably find something thought provoking in it. Excellent, really happy with the purchase.

Great for Kids ( and adults) July 1 2014
By C. West - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The best book I have ever read on religion targeted at the 9-14 year age group. My kids read it from cover to cover and then asked me why religion is not taught like this at their school ( which is Catholic) Explains religion with honesty and humour, with very cool illustrations. Some very ignorant religious adults I know would benefit from having a read of it!
