This illuminating and provocative book offers a guide to the religions of the world, focusing on the irrationality of religious beliefs. Listeners will be encouraged to reflect more carefully on why they believe what they believe. Every religion thinks it is the true religion. But clearly, they cannot all be right. The Seduction of Religion places each of the major religions in its historical context and examines some of their most important doctrines in the light of reason and common sense. At the same time, it treats its listener to a host of amusing facts and anecdotes about the various religions that make the book enjoyable to hear. At the heart of the book is a paradox: All religions claim to be the one true religion, but if any of them is right then all the others are wrong. The text introduces its listeners to the fascinating history of religions - a history that is the outworking of this thought-provoking paradox.
