Outgrowing Dawkins: The Case Against Dogmatic Atheism

£9.99

In ‘Outgrowing God’, Richard Dawkins tries to show that all religious belief is intellectually nonsensical and thus highly damaging in practice. But does he even understand what he rejects? In this incisive rebuttal, Rupert Shortt exposes the main flaws in Dawkins’s arguments – his weakness for crude caricatures, selective way with evidence, ignorance of philosophy and history as well as theology, and even his questionable interpretations of science. At the same time ‘Outgrowing Dawkins’ demonstrates the coherence of a mature, self-critical faith and its contribution to human progress.
