Overview

Many people's understanding of the world does not include God. A number of 'new atheist' authors - such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett - claim that science can explain how the universe works without any need for the divine, and this seems to have become the default position in modern Western culture. But a great number of people are prepared to spend time and effort trying to establish some sort of spiritual dimension to their lives. Faced with the choice between rejecting modern scientific knowledge or all awareness of the divine, they choose from a range of vaguely 'spiritual' practices and ideas, which can be picked up and dropped with minimal commitment. Making Sense of Faith in God , as the title indicates, offers a different alternative: to reject neither reason nor God, because believing in God makes sense.
