Suggests strategies for beginningto counter the divisive aspects of religion * Discusses the role of religion and religious criticism in thecontemporary world.Argues for a position sceptical of the moralauthority of religion, while also critiquing the excesses of the new atheists for failing to appreciate the moralcontributions of religion * Awarded Honourable Mention, 2010 Prose Awards
