Should we believe in God? In this new book, written for a new generation, the brilliant science writer and author of The God Delusion, explains why we shouldn't.

Should we believe in God? Do we need God in order to explain the existence of the universe? Do we need God in order to be good? In twelve chapters that address some of the most profound questions human beings confront, Dawkins marshals science, philosophy and comparative religion to interrogate the hypocrisies of all the religious systems and explain to readers of all ages how life emerged without a Creator, how evolution works and how our world came into being.

For anyone hoping to grapple with the meaning of life and what to believe, Outgrowing God is a challenging, thrilling and revelatory read.

Reviews for Outgrowing God: A Beginner's Guide

Dawkins new book is special in the terrain of atheists' pleas for humanism and rationalism precisely since it speaks to those most vulnerable to the coercive tactics of religion. As Dawkins himself says in the dedication, this book is for all young people when they're old enough to decide for themselves. It is also, I must add, for their parents. * Professor Janna Levin, Claire Tow Professor of Physics & Astronoy at Barnard College of Columbia University * Books of 2019: Richard Dawkins has always had it in for the almighty and he's back to take another pop at the poor bloke. Here he outlines what he believes is the real meaning of life. * The Times * His contagious enthusiasm renders the basics of natural selection newly astonishing. * The Guardian * Books of 2019: The scientist and controversial commentator on religious and cultural questions presents an accessible, junior version of The God Delusion (2006). * Guardian * Outgrowing God is another sally against his oldest foe, the Almighty * The Times *
