Bertrand Russell on God and Religion

Among the many thinkers and writers of contemporary Western culture, Bertrand Russell stands out as one of the most brilliant and prolific. The range of his inquiring mind is virtually without parallel, and never more sharp than when it seeks to critically analyze cherished popular beliefs respecting God and religion. Al Seckel has rescued many of Russell’s best essays on religion, free thought, and rationalism from their resting places in obscure pamphlets, hard-to-find books, and out-of-print periodicals to form a superb combination. No current volume captures the scope and depth of Russell’s thinking on the subject of religion quite like Bertrand Russell on God and Religion.
