Not a bad collection of essays on religion and spirituality. Like all collections there are some really good essays and some really bad ones. I would recommend skipping the last section of the book as it is poorly written and doesn't even attempt to be objective.

The book presents a good cross-section for the Big Five religions.

Try it.

Like any collection of essays, this has some wonderful entries that are dead one, some mediocre entries, and a couple of outright bad ones, but the overall net is good, partially because the book is carried along by some particularly heavy hitters who are also good writers.

Kick is a good author but not such a great editor. Much of this tome is anecdotal stories about priests and whatall which does nothing to make a case for a diety or not.

The editor of this book started with a simple premise: what you know about god, faith, your religion, the Bible-all that is dead wrong. And in some ways, this compilation did a good job illustrating that. He collected various writings to explain all the reasons why religion is a bit screwy, though I don't think he is successful at showing that belief in god is screwy. I think he does a better job of showing that blind acceptance of religious precepts and blind dismissal of other ideas is foolish because it makes no logical sense to think your ideas are any better than someone else's. This might be a better way of showing why religious tolerance is important.… (mais)
