Review of Atheism Companion

"This is undoubtedly a book all serious students and scholars of atheism will want to have on their shelves. What it sometimes lacks in elegance and style it more than makes up for in scholarship and clarity. Its failings merely reflect the failings of academic atheism, which has not sufficiently heeded the key lesson it preaches to others: you don’t need God to find meaning and purpose in life, and that includes atheist, academic life."

Review of the Cambridge Companion to Atheism, ed. Michael Martin, published in Religious Studies, Vol 44, Issue 03, September 2008.
