Overview

Few can offer a more experienced view on religion than Ray Bradley. Having been raised as a ‘winner of souls for Christ’ in the 1940s, he spent the next 40 years as an atheist professor of philosophy and an outspoken critic /debater of religion.

 

Revered for his work in logic and his meticulous approach to debate, God’s Gravediggers is Bradley’s coup de grâce to religion. A career’s worth of work on a subject that could hardly be more important. Approaching the moral, logical and scientific arguments – using rich analogies, rational arguments and examples that non-academics would understand – he explores not only whether God exists, but also what damage the concept of God does. A timely book in an age of religious fundamentalism, hatred and conflict.

 

“Bradley does not gloss over difficult points of logic and reasoning. A pleasure to read.”

Professor Graham Oppy, Chair of Council of the Australasian Association of Philosophy

 

“From a young person's rejection of Christianity, to a mature philosopher's cogent critique of all religions. This compelling defense of atheism is a brilliant read.”

Professor Robert Nola, University of Auckland.

 

“Bradley's forte is logic and he brings that to bear throughout the work. It is well-written and thoroughly absorbing.  I have nothing but praise for his project.”

Theodore Drange, Professor Emeritus, West Virginia University
