Is Religion Irrational?

Keith Ward

$14.99

Paperback
Does belief in God require a sacrifice of intelligence?

If the New Atheists are to be believed, religious belief is not only dangerous and irrational, but just plain stupid. With increasingly intolerant polemic they are dismissing the views of religious people, and misconstruing them in the process.

In this book, Keith Ward debunks the notion that rationality and intelligence are incompatible with belief in God, going through some of the main criticisms raised by the New Atheists (and their predecessors), for example:

  • Does God cause evil?
  • Is the universe intelligently designed?
  • Is God free?
This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the current cultural war between atheism and belief.^
