The God Delusion

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Richard Dawkins

Narrated By: Richard Dawkins, Lalla Ward

Publisher: Transworld Digital

Date: October 2006

Duration: 13 hours 53 minutes

Summary:

The God Delusion caused a sensation when it was published in 2006. Within weeks it became the most hotly debated topic, with Dawkins himself branded as either saint or sinner for presenting his hard-hitting, impassioned rebuttal of religion of all types.
His argument could hardly be more topical. While Europe is becoming increasingly secularized, the rise of religious fundamentalism, whether in the Middle East or Middle America, is dramatically and dangerously dividing opinion around the world. In America, and elsewhere, a vigorous dispute between 'intelligent design' and Darwinism is seriously undermining and restricting the teaching of science. In many countries religious dogma from medieval times still serves to abuse basic human rights such as women's and gay rights. And all from a belief in a God whose existence lacks evidence of any kind.
Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry and abuses children.
The God Delusion is a brilliantly argued, fascinating polemic that is required listening for anyone interested in this most emotional and important subject.
Available now as an unabridged audiobook, narrated by Richard Dawkins himself.

    Having come from a place far from God in stubborn stability in my logic, through to an understanding of God's heart as much one man can. I've got to say it's pretty amazing seeing how God has created and designed everything with a perfect explanation for every question, and without having to compromise other's science, or commit professional suicide. Anyway, with that said, I feel I'm in a credible place to say Hawking fails to truly open himself to see both sides before taking the side he does.

    Clear explanations and well substantiated arguments. This should be a compulsory read in schools worldwide. I found the audiobook a lot easier to absorb than the physical book.
