About this book
Subtitled, "What Religion Really Means". A thoughtful and cultured response to Richard Dawkins, from the former nun and author of "A History Of God". Traces the history of faith from the Palaeolithic Age to the present, and shows that the meaning of words such as 'belief', 'faith' and 'mystery' has been entirely altered. 'Forget Richard Dawkins - just read it with an open mind' Jeanette Winterson
Tracing the history of faith from the Palaeolithic Age to the present, this title shows that meaning of words such as 'belief', 'faith', and 'mystery' has been entirely altered, so that atheists and theists alike think and speak about God - and, indeed, reason itself - in a way that our ancestors would have found astonishing.
