Review: God And Man

God And Man
God And Man by Anthony Bloom

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a very good, if somewhat short and disconnected, book. The transcript of the original conversation between Metropolitan Anthony and Marghanita Laski, an atheist, as broadcast by the BBC opens the book. What follows are several chapters in which Metropolitan Anthony, in a variety of lectures given on different occasions, explores the themes discussed in that conversation. Overall, I was very impressed by Metropolitan Anthony’s treatments of doubt, atheism, and the modern world, though I occasionally found some of his ideas to be too vaguely defined to be useful. I also think the book might have been better overall had the dialogue continued throughout the book, with answers by atheists to the Metropolitan’s chapters. I recommend this book for anyone interested in the importance of doubt in the modern world.
