Recent bestsellers about atheism have featured intelligent, well-reasoned arguments against the existence of God, but delivered them in a hostile and sometimes intolerant way. In Good Without God, Harvard chaplain and Humanist Greg Epstein delivers a constructive, challenging response to these manifestos. Rather than seeking to destroy religion, Humanists strive to live well, build community, and be good ... without God.

Epstein argues that, at a time when debates over faith and morality rage more fiercely than ever, and when millions are searching for something they can put their faith in, Humanism offers comfort and hope. It affirms our ability to live ethical lives of personal fulfillment, and to work together for the greater good.

Greg Epstein holds a B.A. (Religion and Chinese) and an M.A. (Judaic Studies) from the University of Michigan, and a Masters of Theological Studies from the Harvard Divinity School. He was the primary organizer of "The New Humanism" international conference at Harvard. Epstein is a regular contributor to "On Faith," an online forum on religion produced by Newsweek magazine and The Washington Post, and his work has been featured by National Public Radio, BBC Radio, Newsweek, The Boston Globe, and others.

"Good Without God is not just a brilliant book title but an indispensable and humane ideal. Greg Epstein's wise and warm explanation of the humanist world view goes beyond the recent atheist bestsellers and speaks to the moral and spiritual impulses that have traditionally attracted people to religion." -- Steven Pinker, bestselling author of The Language Instinct and How the Mind Works
