I have been sick today. So while sitting in bed, I decided to read this book, The Dawkins Delusion? Atheist Fundamentalism and the Denial of the Divine(Intervarsity Press, 2007) by Alister McGrath and Joanna Collicutt McGrath.
I read some things that were interesting.
And I reacted to some things that I thought to be a sloppy, careless, unscholarly lumping together of atheist fundamentalism and Christian fundamentalism.
But here is one statement as we approach October 31 that I vigorously agree upon in the book,
Legitimate criticism of religious ideas can all too easily give way to the rather more disturbing and dangerous vilification of a people (80-81).
It is a very valid warning.
