Summary:

The New York Times bestselling author speaks out against those who attack religion to advance their own agenda: global capitalism, intolerance, and imperial projects.

There are two radical and dangerous sides to the debate on faith and religion in America: Christian fundamentalists, who see religious faith as their exclusive prerogative, and New Atheists, who brand all religious belief as irrational. Too often, the religious majority, those committed to tolerance and compassion as well as their faith, are caught in the middle.

Chris Hedges critiques the mindset that rages against religion and faith. He accuses the New Atheists, led by Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and Christopher Hitchens, of promoting a belief system that is not, as they claim, based on reason and science, but on a simplified worldview of us vs. them, intolerance toward behaviors that are not understood, and the false myths of human progress and moral superiority. Ultimately, he makes way for new, moderate voices to join the debate. A timely, compelling work for anyone who wants to understand the true state of the battle about faith today.

    this is by far the most depressing book I've ever heard. someone needs to explain to this dude that atheism is not a religion. I don't care how many famous people claim otherwise. atheist simply means a disbelief in a deity. also if one atheists makes a statement it does not mean that all atheists share said statement.
