← Do atheists need their own bible?

Atheists don't need a bible, absolutely not. What a silly notion.

Grayling's book is a delight in itself. He is an excellent writer, distiller of cogent thought and has a literary ability that most of us don't have.

His writings over the years have always been a lovely and absorbing read for me and many others (obviously). This one is no different. If anything the layout and pithiness of his well ordered material is even better.

I downloaded it to my Kindle and am reading with a smile on my face and an appreciation of a writing style and content that suits me right down to the ground.

A deeply satisfying read by an educated and intelligent man - head and shoulders above the desert dwellers who tried cobble together an impossibly inadequate story with so many loose ends, the sweater unravels all by itself. Give me a smart, focussed and compassionate writer any day.

Classy bloke, the Grayling. And I am very glad he can and does write.

Cheers V
