If you are want to argue in favour of one or more gods, this book will show you the key thinking you need to overcome, if you are against all gods, this will give you arguments short enough to open the discussion and if you are sitting on the fence, this will give you one side in a nutshell without skipping the key points.
It also sets out Grayling's alternative view, humanism, in case you are afraid that the consequences of abandoning religion are loss of purpose in life.
