Reviews

"The case against organized religion has seldom been so cogently put."--Newsweek "An honest, uplifting, learned and highly readable argument against conformism. People who tend toward any conceivable form of heresy are likely to find it worth ten volumes of standard inspirational pap."--Life "The book is a demonstration of Kaufmann's high spirits as well as his learning and cogency. He wants, he says, to make the reader feel his own faith is at stake, and whether that reader puts his faith in philosophy or popular religion, he will feel the sting of Kaufmann's wit."--The Progressive
