About this title:

Synopsis: Many people have a deep curiosity about religion and its shortcomings. This book, written for the general reader, takes a comprehensive look at the critiques of religion in Western history and the courageous thinkers who developed those critiques. While many people know the names of the thinkers covered, they often have little knowledge of their views and the contexts in which they worked. Here is a new look at our heritage in the criticism of religion.

Review: In this unpretentious and engaging book, Anton Jacobs gives a sympathetic reading to the internal and external critics of religion, especially Christianity. He does so to exorcize the problems inherent in religion, not to refute the critics (though he even-handedly notes their shortcomings) or justify a simple rejection of religion. This is a reasonable and well-informed probing of the grounds for critical doubt and critical faith. Serious believers and serious unbeleivers will enjoy this work; superficial believers and superficial unbelievers will find it disturbing.--Anthony J. Blasi, Tennessee State University

I don t care if you are an atheist or a Christian fundamentalist, if you are interested in how religion in the West has been criticized, you must read a new book by one of Kansas City s own. . . . Jacobs knows how to tell a story.--Vern Barnet, Faith & Politics Columnist for The Kansas City Star"

I don't care if you are an atheist or a Christian fundamentalist, if you are interested in how religion in the West has been criticized, you must read a new book by one of Kansas City's own. . . . Jacobs knows how to tell a story.--Vern Barnet, Faith & Politics Columnist for The Kansas City Star

Criticism of religion did not start with the aggressive atheists who get so much media attention today. Indeed, as Anton K. Jacobs describes it in this important and profoundly engaging book, criticism of religion seems to have been born the same week as religion itself. But despite all this criticism, there's a vital and persuasive word to be said on behalf of religion. Jacobs says that word with such insight and clarity that no doubt it will provoke yet more criticism of religion. Well, bring it on. As Jacobs insists, religion can stand it.--Bill Tammeus, columnist, co-author of They Were Just People
