Quick Overview

SAM HARRIS offers a vivid, historical tour of our willingness to suspend reason in favor of religious beliefs - even when these beliefs inspire the worst of human atrocities. Natalie Angier wrote in the New York Times: "The End of Faith articulates the dangers and absurdities of organized religion so fiercely and so fearlessly that I felt relieved as I read it, vindicated. . . . Harris writes what a sizable number of us think, but few are willing to say."

While warning against the encroachment of organized religion into world politics, Harris draws on insights from neuroscience, philosophy, and Eastern mysticism to deliver a call for a truly modern foundation for ethics and spirituality that is both secular and humanistic.

'A must read for all rational people.' -Alan Dershowitz, professor of law at Harvard University

'While one might dispute some of the claims and arguments presented by Harris, the need for a wakeup call to religious liberals is right on the mark. -Joseph C. Hough Jr., president of Union Theological Seminary, New York
