From its slow decline throughout the latter a part of the 20 th century, faith has been catapulted again into public awareness, no longer least by way of acts of violence, extremism and numerous types of fundamentalism.In this vigorous and mind-blowing contribution to the talk the major feminist theologian, Tina Beattie, argues that the specter of non secular fanaticism is reflected by way of a no much less virulent and ignorant secular fanaticism which has taken carry of the highbrow periods. Its excessive Priest is Richard Dawkins, writer of "The God Delusion", yet its disciples and acolytes contain major opinion formers and commentators reminiscent of A C Grayling and Christopher Hitchens, the journalist Polly Toynbee and the novelists Martin Amis and Ian McEwan. "The New Atheists" demands a extra reasoned and inventive discussion among believers and non-believers approximately questions which impinge deeply on all our lives, and should intrigue each open-minded reader, believer or non-believer.
