'An Atheist's History of Belief, Understanding our most extraordinary invention' - the new non-fiction book from the author of 'English Passengers', winner of the Whitbread Book of the year Award'

 

"Matthew Kneale is an atheist but not a militant one. In this unusual and personal history, he seeks not to disprove belief in its various forms but to discover why we believe and what has shaped those beliefs. He structures his book as a collection of stories, lucidly told. He is not interested in institutions but in religion as a fundamental need – it is, he argues, “humankind’s greatest imaginative project".
