Publisher's Summary

The Necessity of Atheism is a critical review of organized religion from the perspective of a psychologist. The history of mankind is examined with consideration of the scientific evidence available at the time of its writing, and this history is compared with that of the biblical account. Furthermore the influence of religious beliefs on science and philosophy are investigated at length. This is a work that could have been published only in an era in which free thought was on the rise and contains many conclusions that are only now coming into acceptance in the modern era. It flies in the face of accepted doctrine and addresses the proper place of religious tradition in the modern world.
The full narration of the text is preceded by a summary that gives a brief biography of the author and background information for the work as well as an overview, a synopsis, and an analysis. Also included are an exploration of the criticisms, historical context, and social impact of the text.
This is a must-hear for those interested in religion from a historical or philosophical standpoint and for any interested in expanding their knowledge of religion and its impact on the human race.

Not 13 hours, not even 4

A decent, insightful listen. However the book is actually far shorter than stated, as many parts are repeated.
