John Gray on "Why Tolerate Religion?" in The New Statesman

I'm sure my pal Todd Zywicki will be posting this review of my book by the British political theorist John Gray soon on his blog, but just in case, here it is; an excerpt:   “A model of clarity and rigour and at points strikingly original, this is a book that anyone who thinks seriously about religion, ethics and politics will benefit from reading.”  Gray makes one error in his discussion of my characterization of religion, which is that the characteristics identified are conjunctive; I quite agree with the points he makes about them considered individually.

UPDATE:  Here's my talk on the book from the Carnegie Council in New York.
