Religion for Atheists is an interesting and lively discussion of the benefits of religious teachings within a secular society.

Moving away from the more antagonistic undertones than one tends to find on the subject of atheism, De Botton’s approach is a positive look at how in areas such as community, education and art we can enrich our lives by incorporating ideas rooted in spirituality. Working as a counterbalanced lesson in religious history and as a self help guide, Religion for Atheists acts as a call to arms for a more open and tolerant society, that handpicks faith’s most beneficial ideologies to create a finely tuned customised approach to life and civilization.
