God and the new atheism


Read an interview with the latest flea author John Haught at Salon.com here (thanks to Richard Prins)

PZ Myers has done a nice breakdown of the above interview here

In God and the New Atheism a world expert on science and theology gives clear, concise, and compelling answers to the charges against religion laid out in recent bestselling books by Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion), Sam Harris (The End of Faith), and Christopher Hitchens (God Is not Great).

For some, these "new atheists" appear to say extremely well what they believe to be wrong with religion. But, as John Haught shows, the treatment of religion in these books is riddled with logical inconsistencies, shallow misconceptions, and crude generalizations.

Can God really be dismissed as a mere delusion? Is faith really the enemy of reason? And does religion really poison everything?

God and the New Atheism offers a much-needed antidote to the extremist claims of scientific fundamentalism. It will enable readers to see through the rhetorical fog, think through the arguments for themselves, and come to a clearer understanding of the issues at stake in this crucial debate.

UPDATE: This looks like it is actually the SAME book as you see in Richard's flea-orbit below titled "A Catholic Replies to Professor Dawkins (UK)" (they have the same blurb). This must be a case of them trying to hype it up for the US market.
