“His final chapter summarises the argument and proposes how one might be a healthy atheist with a sense of meaning and purpose, a sense of belonging and community and a set of personal goals and values. He does not forecast the disappearance of religions but proposes how they can be explained in terms of psychology and sociology.” (The Scientific & Medical Network, 1 April 2012)Dawkins and Dennett taught us that there’s no room for God in biology. Stenger and Hawking taught us that there’s no room for God in cosmology either. Now Mick Power pushes God out of his last safe haven: the human mind. Power has written a great little book, showing that psychology is just as much of a threat to religious belief as evolutionary theory and cosmology. Fundamentalists are going to lose a lot of sleep over this one!

“In Adieu to God, Mick Power gives a powerful and humane account of the case for atheism from an under-explored angle.”
