By Terry Eagleton
Terry Eagleton’s witty and polemical cause, religion, and Revolution is sure to reason a stir between scientists, theologians, humans of religion and folks of no religion, in addition to normal readers wanting to comprehend the God Debate. at the one hand, Eagleton demolishes what he calls the “superstitious” view of God held by means of so much atheists and agnostics and provides as a substitute a innovative account of the Christian Gospel. however, he launches a stinging attack at the betrayal of this revolution through institutional Christianity.
There is little pleasure right here, then, both for the anti-God brigade—Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens in particular—nor for lots of traditional believers. as a substitute, Eagleton deals his personal brilliant account of faith and politics in a publication that levels from the Holy Spirit to the new heritage of the center East, from Thomas Aquinas to the dual Towers.
