About this book
Moving on the debate between believers and non-believers, de Botton argues that of course the supernatural claims of religion are entirely false, and yet religions still have important things to teach the secular world. Now in paperback, this wise and life-affirming book helps anyone in their quest for meaning and their place in the world. 'Smart and stimulating... a sensitive analysis of the deeply human needs that faith meets' "Financial Times"
Rejects the supernatural claims of religion and points out just how many good ideas they sometimes have about how we should live. This book shows us a range of ideas on a range of topics, including relationships, work, culture, love and death - and that could be of use to all of us, irrespective of whether we do or don't believe.
