Why Atheism for Lent

Merold Westphal is a Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Fordham University. His research and writing are focused upon modern Continental philosophy with a particular emphasis on the historical development and systematic integrity of individual thinkers, their dialogue and debate with one another, and their contributions to the philosophy of religion, political philosophy, and aesthetics.

In this introduction from Suspicion and Faith, Westphal gives a great reflection on why we should read great critiques of religion for Lent. This was the book that directly inspired Atheism for Lent.
