In this, the paperback edition of the influential bestseller, Keith Ward dismantles the attacks on religion by scientists, sociologists, and psychologists, who claim that religion is nothing more than a host of naïve superstitions and delusions. Examining the work of thinkers from Sigmund Freud to Emile Durkheim, Ward offers an alternative view, demonstrating religion's key contribution to the human condition and its crucial relevance to the world today.

Ward dismantles the arguments against religion from fields as diverse as science, sociology, and psychology, offering an alternative view that emphasizes how religious faith can overcome selfishness, give a sense of purpose, and transform behavior.
