Belief & Unbelief

Belief & Unbelief: Womanhood Beyond Religion

By Barbara G. Walker

Barbara G. Walker, bestselling author of The Woman’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets and past winner of the American Humanist Association’s Humanist Heroine Award, takes a hard look at religion in her latest book: Belief & Unbelief. Walker’s 22 new essays cover the spectrum, from The Islamic Holocaust being perpetrated against women to the dizziness of crystal-gazers in Encountering the New Age. Walker explains in depth how religion has been perverted from its naturalistic roots in the celebration of the mystery of new life to a patriarchal orgy of violence.

In Does Religion Make People Good?, Walker responds with an emphatic “No!”, citing extensive evidence of Bible Morality to produce today’s Christian God the Monster. Women have borne the brunt of patriarchal religion’s evils – Walker even argues cogently for Religion As the Root of Sexism. Yet in her conclusion, Family and the Future, the ever-upbeat Walker imagines a return to the original, best traditions of religion as a metaphor for the wonder of the universe.
