God's Gravediggers: Why no Deity Exists.
Raymond D. Bradley
Few can offer a more experienced view on religion than Raymond Bradley. Having been raised as a ‘winner of souls for Christ’ in the 1940’s, he spent the next 40 years as an atheist professor of philosophy and an outspoken critic/debater of religion.
Revered for his work in logic and his meticulous approach to debate, God’s Gravediggers is Bradley’s coup de grâce to religion. A career’s worth of work on a subject that could hardly be more important. Approaching the moral, logical and scientific arguments – using rich analogies, rational arguments and examples that non-academics would understand – he explores not only whether God exists, but also what damage the concept of God does. A timely book in an age of religious fundamentalism, hatred and conflict.
“Bradley does not gloss over difficult points of logic and reasoning. A pleasure to read.”
Professor Graham Oppy, Chair of Council of the Australasian Association of Philosophy
“Bradley's forte is logic and he brings that to bear throughout the work. It is well-written and thoroughly absorbing. I have nothing but praise for his project.”
Theodore Drange, Professor Emeritus, West Virginia University
“From a young person's rejection of Christianity, to a mature philosopher's cogent critique of all religions. This compelling defense of atheism is a brilliant read.”
Professor Robert Nola, University of Auckland.
