"The End of Faith by Sam Harris is a genuinely frightening book about terrorism, and the central role played by religion in justifying and rewarding it. Others blame ”extremists” who ”distort” the ”true” message of religion. Harris goes to the root of the problem: religion itself. Even moderate religion is a menace, because it leads us to respect and ”cherish the idea that certain fantastic propositions can be believed without evidence”. Why do men like Bin Laden commit their hideous cruelties? The answer is that they ”actually believe what they say they believe”. Read Sam Harris and wake up. — professor Richard Dawkins, The Guardian
"Do we need another book on the conflict between reason and faith? Yes, if it is as well-written as Sam Harris’s The End of Faith.” — New Scientist
”At last we have a book that focuses on the common thread that links Islamic terrorism with the irrationality of all religious faith. The Eng of Faith will challenge not only Muslims but Hindus, Jews and Christians as well.”
— Peter Singer, professor of philosophy at Princeton and author of The President of Good and Evil: The Ethics of George W.
