The Secular Mind
Robert Coles

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"The Secular Mind offers many small gems. . . . Demanding, but definitely worth the effort."--Booklist (starred review)

"This book poses gripping existential questions elegantly. The writing invites general readers. . . ."--The Virginia Quarterly Review

"This book is well written and quite readable at all levels. . . . Reading it is a delightful and stimulating experience."--Choice

"Coles is one of the best story-tellers in social science . . . The Secular Mind is a book for the unhurried reader . . . [We learn] to become deeper participants in a respectful yet distancing reflection on our culture and times."--James R. Kelly, Cross Currents

"This work is the product of a wise man sincerely asking up to rethink our basic values. Coles' style is casual and meditative; his book almost reads like a journal. Readers from a variety of disciplines will appreciate Coles' work."--Laju M. Balani, Journal of Church and State

ENDORSEMENT:

"It's a pleasure to be in the presence of a man so smart and yet still capable of being rendered speechless by a student's sincere philosophical concerns. There are no conclusions here, but following Coles's considerations is worth the effort."--Ron Charles, The Christian Science Monitor
