Author: Andrew Walker: formerly Professor of Theology, Culture and Education, King’s College London

‘If there are many different religions, there are also many different atheisms,’ says John Gray, in his book, Seven Types of Atheism. An English philosopher, Gray says that the New Atheists, who have dominated the debate between faith and non-faith for the past generation, have failed to understand both religion and the broad tradition of atheism. This booklet by Andrew Walker provides a critical introduction to Gray’s book, and shows how theism and atheism have more to say to each other than you might think.
