    An excellent, much-needed book

    This is an excellent book on several levels. For nonreligious people who felt that there was no movement or community for them, Epstein demonstrates that indeed there is. For those who are unfamiliar with Humanism, Epstein explains its history and concepts in a clear, readable way. For those who are religious but wish to better understand their secular neighbors, Epstein brilliantly provides that insight. Most importantly, Epstein provides a practical guide for Secular Americans who wish to see their movement go to the next level. Rather than dismiss religion outright as silly and outdated, Epstein thoughtfully considers all aspects of religion and suggests that the secular community utilize those aspects (community, emotional support, etc.) that can be utilized without sacrificing honest naturalism. Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett and Christopher Hitchens may have debunked religion very effectively in recent years, but Epstein provides the real roadmap for a successful Humanist movement. Considering there has never been a book about Humanism by a major publisher in America, this excellent book will most likely go down as a groundbreaking, important milestone in the Humanist movement.

    more from this reviewer

    Finally someone wrote what I had a hard time saying for myself

    Often I am asked about my Humanist lifestance by others who are interested in Humanism or by those who do not understand this philosophy. I can now direct them to a book that solidifies my views of tolerance and human flourishing and that is not anti-religious like some of the "new atheists" books out there. A perfect gift for those who no longer believe in "organized" religion and/or God and is looking for something to replace the void.
