A witty and polemical volume, bound to cause sir among scientists, theologians, people of faith and people of no faith, as well as general readers eager to understand the God Debate. On the on hand, Eagleton demolishes what he calls the “superstitious” view of God held by most atheists and agnostics and offer in its place a revolutionary account of the Christian Gospel. On the other, he launches a stinging assault on the betrayal of this revolution by institutional Christianity, Eagleton offers his own vibrant account of religion and politics in a book that ranges from the holy spirit to the recent history of the Middle East, from Thomas Aquinas to Twin Towers.
