Alain de Botton’s new book ‘Religion for Atheists: A non-believer’s guide to the uses of religion’ says what I’ve been saying recently about the value of religion. Religious traditions have survived so well because they serve something greater than just our spiritual needs. They help us reflect, they make us feel safe, they bond us together. It’s a nice surprise to find that someone well-respected is thinking the same kind of things as me, and even better to think that I arrived at that conclusion by myself.

The book is available from Amazon here.
