Rated 5 out of 5 by from Religion put into a logical explanation. Mr. Thompson examines why we believe in a God and what religion means from a rational and logical debate. Examining the great philosophers past, with debates and explanations he weaves through to modern time with clear definitions of abstract thoughts and beliefs. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It cleared up many issues I had trouble rationalizing. If you want clarity for religous concepts this is a must read.
