E-book Explanation:

A preeminent scientist—and the world's most prominent atheist—asserts the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm religion has inflicted on society, from the Crusades to 9/11. With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. 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, buttressing his points with historical and contemporary evidence. The God Delusion makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just wrong but potentially deadly. It also offers exhilarating insight into the advantages of atheism to the individual and society, not the least of which is a clearer, truer appreciation of the universe's wonders than any faith could ever muster.

E-book Explanation:

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.

E-book Explanation:

'The God Delusion Revisited' is an ordinary Christian's review of Richard Dawkins' recent polemic on religion, 'The God Delusion'. It specifically and comprehensively targets the views expounded in 'The God Delusion' and questions the credibility that Dawkins enjoys through his scientific writings, a credibility that is not based on his 'religious' expertise but on his work in the field of zoology. 'The God Delusion Revisited' highlights this undeserved prominence and provides balance in the current growing debate on religion. Mike King is a Christian and has written 'The God Delusion Revisited' from a Christian perspective. He was born and raised as a Roman Catholic and attended schools run by Benedictine monks. He lost his faith in his mid-teens and for most of his life has regarded himself as somewhere between atheism and agnosticism. He became a Christian in 2002. He is married with two children and has also written 'In the blink of an eye', an autobiographical work.
