    There are two radical and dangerous sides to the debate on faith and religion in America: Christian fundamentalists, who see religious faith as their exclusive prerogative, and New Atheists, who brand all religious belief as irrational. Too often, the religious majority - those committed to tolerance and compassion as well as their faith - are caught in the middle.

    Ulrike Nunn says: "Not terrible, a little scrambled ,angry reader."

    Overall

    Chris Hedges is an important thinker. He writes polemics, and sometimes his brush is too broad. Yet, his is an important voice. Although he is now largely outside the church, he writes essentially from a Christian perspective, extending the ideas of Niebuhr. Although having been reared within the church and having been trained as a theologian, he believes the mainline churches have become complacent. However, his polemic is primarily directed towards fundamentalism, whether of the religious or atheistic form, by which he means the belief in the perfectibility of man and the imperialistic enterprises which such a belief encourages. He primary argument, following in Niebuhr's footsteps, is against hubris, the belief that we know the Truth, whether it takes a religious or cultural form, and that that those who oppose us are benighted and, if necessary, should be eliminated so that our superior way of life shall be universal.
