Eagleton's Reason, Faith, and Revolution

I've been reading, and writing a review, of ...

REASON, FAITH, AND REVOLUTION: Reflections on the God Debate
By Terry Eagleton
185 pp., Yale University Press, $25.00
... for the June issue of The Internet Review of Books. Eagleton writes plainly, but his arguments are complex, a tightly knitted garment woven from threads of mysticism and strands of liberation theology. What's most intriguing to me as I am finishing the book is his argument that atheists and agnostics have too much faith in reason.

Watch for the review on June 15th.
