    Another Excellent Job from Richard Carrier

    I have to confess right off the bat that I am a huge fan of Columbia historian Richard Carrier. His essays posted on the Secular Web are some of the best written on a wide range of historical subjects and philosophical topics. His new book, Sense and Goodness Without God is a brilliant addition to an already impressive body of work. Here he takes on the nature of the universe itself and our place in it, and explores the questions all of us have about making sense of morality, existence, and the meaning of life. The range of subjects he covers here is truly astounding, and he delves into them deeply without ever losing his audience with jargon or philosobabble. On top of this, his investigation is informed by a powerful commitment to intellectual honesty, and infused with a rare sense of true love for life. A remarkable, readable book that I recommend whole-heartedly to anyone interested in the question of finding meaning and joy in life.

    Predictable

    It's interesting how books at the polar ends of dogmatic theism and dogmatic atheism pretend to have all of the answers to the 'big' questions in life. The criticisms of theism are often simplistic (e.g. because some Christians have done bad things therefore the whole religion is bad) and little of it is new or original not to mention you can find them on the internet for free. A large part of the book is devoted to esoteric musings by the author on topics from beauty to income taxes. OK for Carrier fans but hardly essential reading.
