Waterstones Says

Utterly uncompromising and deliberately inflammatory, The God Delusion is Dawkins’s impassioned denunciation of any kind of supreme being or divine creator. Deconstructing religious dogma of all stripes with relentless rationalism and cogent argument, this book has become the touchstone for the modern atheist movement.   

The God Delusion caused a sensation when it was published in 2006. Within weeks it became the most hotly debated topic, with Dawkins himself branded as either saint or sinner for presenting his hard-hitting, impassioned rebuttal of religion of all types.

His argument could hardly be more topical. While Europe is becoming increasingly secularized, the rise of religious fundamentalism, whether in the Middle East or Middle America, is dramatically and dangerously dividing opinion around the world. In America, and elsewhere, a vigorous dispute between 'intelligent design' and Darwinism is seriously undermining and restricting the teaching of science. In many countries religious dogma from medieval times still serves to abuse basic human rights such as women's and gay rights. And all from a belief in a God whose existence lacks evidence of any kind.

Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry and abuses children.

The God Delusion is a brilliantly argued, fascinating polemic that will be required reading for anyone interested in this most emotional and important subject.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Written with all the clarity and elegance of which Dawkins is a master. It should have a place in every school library - especially in the library of every "faith" school.' - Philip Pullman

'A resounding trumpet blast for truth... It feels like coming up for air.' - Matt Ridley

'A spirited and exhilarating read... Dawkins comes roaring forth in the full vigour of his powerful arguments, laying into fallacies and false doctrines with the energy of the polemicist at his most fiery.' - Joan Bakewell, Guardian

'This is my favourite book of all time... a heroic and life-changing work.' - Derren Brown

'One of the best non-fiction writers alive today.' - Steven Pinker

“Worth a Read”

Approaching this book as an a-Dawkinsist (if you will) I was quite enthused to find his initial arguements far from satisfying. Within the first six or so chapters I found myself taking numerous notes regarding some... More

“The God Delusion”

Worthy of a read, if (like me) you are "on the fence". A bit hard going for the first third, but once you get into the swing of the topic, it's a delightful read.
