New book – The Case for God by Karen Armstrong

In this review the book is called “Karen Armstrong’s rebuttal to the new atheists”:

The Case for God

Taken together, well over a million and a half copies of [atheist] books were printed and purchased in the past five years. Why did they strike such a chord in American readers?

Stepping into the debate and answering this question is Karen Armstrong. A former Catholic nun as well as a former skeptic (“for many year I myself wanted nothing whatsoever to do with religion”), Armstrong enters this conversation with twenty years of religious study to her credit. She is an expert on world religions, the author of bestselling and respected works on Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, and even A History of God. So we can take Armstrong’s title, The Case for God, very seriously and hear it as a profound rebuttal to the new atheists of the moment.

    It should be called “The Case for Religion”. She appears to ignore God. And religion in her mind is performance art to make you feel better.

    Why do I get this sneaking suspicion that this will be nothing but more of the same tired, refuted arguments that we’ve heard time and time again, just reworded? I may check it out (or just wait for the skeptics refutation to come out in a couple days, as I’m sure it will).
