Why Faith Matters by David J. Wolpe

The Los Angeles Times has an interesting review of David J. Wolpe’s book “Why Faith Matters” written by Jonathan Kirsch:

Wolpe is no Bible-thumper, however, and here he is clearly not preaching to the pews. Indeed, “Why Faith Matters” appears to be addressed to the secular reader and sets out to repudiate the arguments of bestselling authors such as Hitchens and Dawkins.

Significantly, Wolpe never calls on the reader to accept religion out of true belief; rather, he asks us only to keep an open mind on the subject. “I do not believe our choice is either an absence of God or an over-zealous embrace of God,” he writes.
