I n this inspiring book, bestselling author and philosopher André Comte-Sponville offers a new perspective on the question of God's existence, acknowledging the good that has come of religion while advocating tolerance from both believers and non-believers. Through clear, concise, and often humorous prose, Comte-Sponville offers a convincing appeal for a new form of spiritual life?one that at its heart celebrates the human need to connect to one another and the universe.

Editorial Reviews

This book's title is not a spoof. Prominent French philosopher André Comte-Sponville refuses to believe that "atheist spirituality" is an oxymoron. He is equally impatient with notions that atheism necessarily entails a leveling nihilism. In place of such extremities, he bases his spiritual but god-free humanism partly on Eastern spiritual traditions and Western ethical norms. A book for free thinkers not afraid of surprising themselves.
