Atheist book review no 23 50 reasons people give for believing in a god


50 reasons people give for believing in a god is a 2008 book by journalist Guy P. Harrison. It was his first book. Drawing on his research and life experience the book lists fifty common reasons that believers across the world give for believing in a god and examines each of them. One major emphasis is that the reasons believers give are different to the reasons given in theology. Harrison also takes a calm and empathetic attitude towards people who believe, in contrast to some other atheist works. He describes Richard Dawkins' use of the term "faith heads" to describe believers as "a lot like an insult" and writes that it is "counterproductive."
