Belief and Make-Believe
Critical Reflections on the Sources of Credulity
G. A. Wells
Why do so many people—sometimes
even intelligent people—swallow the preposterous doctrines of
religion? Professor Wells, the leading freethinker of our time,
tries to shed light on this puzzle in this wide-ranging,
entertaining, and enormously learned book.
George Wells, author of The
Origin of Language, Who Was Jesus?, and Can We
Trust the New Testament, is emeritus professor of German at
the University of London.
