Reviews

The Financial Times

Julian Baggini

Despite the complexity of some of the scientific issues discussed, Questions of Truth is a commendably clear read... It is a pity that the people most likely to buy the book are those simply seeking intellectual reassurance that their faith is not irrational. Those who would most benefit from reading it are in fact fundamentalists who think that evolutionary science must be wrong, and over-confident atheists who believe that the religious are manifestly irrational.
