Book Review: The Australian Book of Atheism
The answer isn’t self-evident; ‘what need is there for a book on atheism with a distinct Australian perspective?’
With this question in mind I made my purchase via the editor’s bookstore, Embiggen Books. Not because I was sure of an answer, but precisely because I wasn’t, the purchase was mandated.
With the various Otherings; the specter of the ‘New Atheist’ monolith; the fearful Easter sermons and the often boilerplate News Limited response, there’s clearly utility in compiling an anthology of varied atheist views, even down under in laid-back Australia.
But why Australian atheists? Being Australian doesn’t make you any more or less of an atheist, and vice versa.
