Description

Why is it that, despite the rise of "godless" science, technology, and secular education, people are turning to religion in greater numbers than ever before? Why do people believe in God at all? These provocative questions lie at the core of How We Believe, an illuminating new study of God, faith, and religion by best selling author Michael Shermer. With his trademark logic and intellectual clarity and intensity, Dr. Shermer offers fresh and often startling insights into age-old questions, exploring the origins and purposes of myth and religion in human history and culture. He also studies how and why humans put their faith in a higher power, even in the face of scientific skepticism. Whether believers or nonbelievers, we are all on an intellectual and spiritual quest to understand the universe and our place in it. Journeying to the heart of this ancient and mysterious desire, How We Believe is a brilliant tour de force that should be listened to by anyone who wishes to comprehend the relationship of science and religion, reason and faith; how the search for the sacred came into being, and how it can thrive in an age of science.
