Overview

 

For this book, Mick Gordon, a catholic of northern Irish extraction, decided to assemble a collection of interviews in which the people he found most interesting on the subject of religion and religious belief would take part. The end result gives us a wide range of opinions from an avowed atheists like Richard Dawkins and A.C. Grayling to committed evangelical christians like Alister McGrath. The variety of contributors and ideas in the pages of this book will interest anyone who wishes to take the phenomenon of faith and religion seriously. Includes interviews with:

Richard Dawkins (University of Oxford)

Alister Mcgrath (University of Oxford)

Karen Armstrong (Former Nun and Bestselling Author)

Tariq Ramadan (St Anthony's College, University of Oxford)

Sir Jonathan Sacks (Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregation of the

Commonwealth)

A.C. Grayling (Birkbeck College, London)

Don Cupitt (Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge)

Archbishop Rowan Williams (Canterbury/Lambeth)

Giles Fraser (Wadham College, University of Oxford)

John Gray (University of London)

Lewis Wolpert (University College, London)

Azzam Tamimi (Director, Institute of Islamic Political Thought, London)

Ann Widdecombe (British Member of Parliament)

Shelina Janmohamed (Writer and Commentator on British Islam)

Julia Neuberger (Rabbi /Member of The House of Lords, UK)

Abdelwahab El-Affendi (Centre For The Study of Democracy, University of Westminister)

Imam Mohammed Yusuf Al-Hussaini (Interfaith Alliance)

Fraser Watts (Queen's College, University of Cambridge)

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

That the editors are a theater director (Gordon) and a journalist (Wilkinson) would not ordinarily augur well for a collection of interviews on the subject of religion. But this good book is an exception because its contributors-among them A.C. Grayling (Birbeck Coll., London), Karen Armstrong (The Battle for God), Rowan Williams (archbishop of Canterbury), and Jonathan Sacks (chief rabbi, United Hebrew Congregation of the Commonwealth)-are well informed and even more well spoken. Some are nonbelievers; others are Christian, Jewish, or Muslim. Their conversations each make up a ten- to-15-page chapter and enable the reader to get very familiar with the opinions of the writer. Unfortunately, all the interviewees are British and so may not be familiar to American readers. Another mark of the Britishness of this collection: except for Gordon, who provides a five-page introduction, no Roman Catholics are included. Recommended for academic libraries and for public libraries with strong religion collections.
—James F. DeRoche
