    Very well read

    I enjoyed this book quite well. Gives you multiple views into christianity, Muslim and Judiasm religions and practices. After reading this book I got a clearer view on the hypocrisy of man and religion, but never once did it deny the existance of Christ or God.

    Michel Onfray dissects precisely, using a magnifying glass...

    *This absolutely excellent work is a very precise deconstruction of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, charting the historic origins and evolution of these three closely related monotheisms. *The original title in French is 'Traite d'Atheologie', which accurately describes the contents. Here in Canada, the English translation's title is 'In Defense of Atheism', which is unfortunate, the tone of the book being far from defensive (It's rather scathingly critical). *Onfray is a very popular French philosopher, and I tremendously enjoyed his literary style: it's both flowery and ... meaty. *The author obviously spent a tremendous amount of time pouring over the so-called 'holy' texts of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam (and other books). There are no factual errors in his work to my knowledge. *Critics complain Onfray ignores the good side of religion. Well, he doesn't: he just dismisses it as relatively insignificant compared to its atrocious side. *Onfray interestingly observes that even though our western societies are now secular, they are still pretty much stuck with judeo-christian values (See for example the institution of marriage or the bioethics debates). *I highly recommend this book, that I just finished reading today in its original language.
