We are pleased to announce that Hartford Area Humanists is now organizing our own Book Discussion Group! Our first discussion will be on Saturday, December 8, when we will discuss Good Without God: What a Billion Nonrelgious People Do Believe by Greg Epstein.
Here is the book description from Amazon: A provocative and positive response to Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and other New Atheists, Good Without God makes a bold claim for what nonbelievers do share and believe. Author Greg Epstein, the Humanist chaplain at Harvard, offers a world view for nonbelievers that dispenses with the hostility and intolerance of religion prevalent in national bestsellers like God is Not Great and The God Delusion. Epstein’s Good Without God provides a constructive, challenging response to these manifestos by getting to the heart of Humanism and its positive belief in tolerance, community, morality, and good without having to rely on the guidance of a higher being.
Of course, folks with differing viewpoints are welcome to come and share their perspective. But, we do request that all attendees read the book.
Good Without God is on the shelf at many public libraries througout the state, and it is an $8.99 download on Kindle.
There is no charge for this event. Food is available at the diner off the menu at your discretion.
