Read in July, 2011

This was a solid primer, and should be helpful as you have conversations with your theistic friends. Epstein concretizes and summarizes things that I had known intuitively but would have been at a loss to articulate (so how well did I know them, really?), and he gives great, non-confrontational entrees for dialog with our theistic/ religious friends. There is a non-theological, humanistic argument for behaving well, and Epstein presents it well and cogently.

This is not Hitchens or Dawkins - it's gentler, more thoughtful, less bombastic and more willing to build coalitions and focus on positive actions for outcomes we all (well, most of us) agree on.

Worth a read!
