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.
