The Evolution of God

I recently finished reading Robert Wright's The Evolution of God. I've already written a very long review at my main blog. Here's the beginning of that review.


It is hard to put concisely just what it is Robert Wright sets out to do in The Evolution of God. It is not that there’s no clear agenda — because agenda has its fingerprints all over this book — but more that the book is a little too ambitious in how it tries to carry out that agenda. Put in simplest terms, the book’s agenda is to urge the Abrahamic faiths toward tolerance, in order that the whole world can receive salvation. (And in case there’s any ambiguity here, this term “salvation” is used in a very un-Abrahamic-faith way, to mean strictly a social salvation in completely material terms.)


Go to my main blog to read the rest of the review.
