Description
What if religions are neither all true nor all nonsense? This provocative book from the author of How Proust Can Change Your Life and The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work argues that we can benefit from the wisdom and power of religion without having to have faith or follow dogma. Alain de Botton suggests that, rather than mocking religion, agnostics and atheists should instead borrow from it, because the world's religions are packed with good ideas on how we might live, as individuals and societies. He underscores religious insights into how to build a sense of community, make relationships last, overcome feelings of envy and inadequacy, inspire travel, get more out of art, and reconnect with the natural world.

"Quirky, often hilarious.... Focusing on just three major faiths—Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism—he makes a convincing case for their ability to create both a sense of community and education that addresses morality and our emotional life." —Washington Post
