Preface to my 95 Theses to the LDS Corridor, part 2

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.

  1. Todd, nice comments. I’ll look for the book. I read McGrath’s previous book, The Twilight of Atheism, and enjoyed it very much (see my posted comments here and here).
