In his most controversial book yet, bestselling author Vincent Bugliosi turns his critical eye on both religious believers and the atheists who reflexively oppose them. Here, the fearless attorney who most memorably prosecuted Charles Manson indicts both camps, calling them out for the intellectual shortcuts each takes to arrive at their convenient conclusions. In the process, he argues lucidly and persuasively why agnosticism--and a healthy skepticism toward certainty of all kinds--is the most responsible position to take with regard to such eternal questions as the existence of God. With his trademark withering wit and humor, Bugliosi skewers such popularizers of atheism as Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, and Richard Dawkins, while also examining such developments as the decline of belief in evolution and the disturbing vengefulness of God as depicted in the Old Testament. Vincent Bugliosi's latest book sets a new course amid the explosion of bestselling books on religion, pro and con--a middle path that urges us to recognize the limits of what we know, and what we cannot know about the ineffable mysteries of existence.
