Publisher's Summary

What are the arguments for and against religion and religious belief - all of them - right across the range of reasons and motives that people have for being religious, and do they stand up to scrutiny? Can there be a clear, full statement of these arguments that once and for all will show what is at stake in this debate? Equally important: what is the alternative to religion as a view of the world and a foundation for morality? Is there a worldview and a code of life for thoughtful people - those who wish to live with intellectual integrity, based on reason, evidence, and a desire to do and be good - that does not interfere with people's right to their own beliefs and freedom of expression? In The Case Against Religion, Anthony Grayling offers a definitive examination of these questions, and an in-depth exploration of the humanist outlook that recommends itself as the ethics of the genuinely reflective person.

Cogently stated arguments for Humanism

Admirably written and expertly narrated, The God Argument makes for very good listening. As a case for Humanism and against belief in gods, it excels.

Educational & Good Performance...

Good perspective, insightful, and educational. The reader performance was entertaining too. A good reference for better understanding humanism and the argument for independent and critical thinking.

Worth listening to

Good content well put. Some arguments a bit difficult to follow listening to audiobook, definitely one to be concentrating on.

Arguments for humanism started on the assumption that we all want 'the good life' for ourselves and other people - I wish he had covered the reasons why. ie 'without religion, why do good at all? Why want anyone to be happy?' Of course he quite rightly pointed out that being good to others because you want to is much better than being good to others for fear of punishment by a deity.

Humanism...yes please

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes because having discovered Humanism myself and dumping the fears imposed by organised Religion I'd like others to discover what I have....and importantly THINK about it and for themselves.

Who was your favorite character and why?

God is an interesting character but hardly a favourite.

What about William Roberts’s performance did you like?

It was fine but wish AC Grayling would read his books...he has such a great speaking voice as can be seen on You Tube.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Most gods are monsters...if you read about them.

Any additional comments?

Glad I bought it.
