Summary
Author Greg Epstein, the Humanist chaplain at Harvard, offers a world view for nonbelievers that dispenses with the hostility and intolerance of religion prevalent in national bestsellers like God is Not Great and The God Delusion. Epstein's Good Without God provides a constructive, challenging response to these manifestos by getting to the heart of Humanism and its positive belief in tolerance, community, morality, and good without having to rely on the guidance of a higher being.--From publisher description
Summary
Offers a constructive look at atheism that focuses on the heart of humanism, which, rather than seeking to destroy religion, offers an approach to life where people try to live well, build community, and celebrate traditions without organized religion
