By Terry Eagleton
Terry Eagleton’s witty and polemical cause, religion, and Revolution is sure to reason a stir between scientists, theologians, humans of religion and other people of no religion, in addition to basic readers desirous to comprehend the God Debate. at the one hand, Eagleton demolishes what he calls the “superstitious” view of God held via such a lot atheists and agnostics and gives as a substitute a progressive account of the Christian Gospel. nevertheless, he launches a stinging attack at the betrayal of this revolution through institutional Christianity.
There is little pleasure right here, then, both for the anti-God brigade—Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens in particular—nor for plenty of traditional believers. as a substitute, Eagleton bargains his personal bright account of faith and politics in a e-book that levels from the Holy Spirit to the new background of the center East, from Thomas Aquinas to the dual Towers.
