Harvard’s Humanist Chaplain to Pen Book

Greg Epstein, Harvard’s Humanist Chaplain and the center of many an “atheist controversy,” has finalized a deal to write a book about Humanism. It is tentatively titled Good Without God.

The book will be published by William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on it and read it. 🙂

  • I like Epstein. Yes, I’m a little disturbed by his preaching on Sundays at churches … but I like the name of the book and it sounds like it’ll be a good read.

  • I suspect that most of Greg Epstein’s Sunday speaking gigs are in Unitarian Universalist pulpits. Unlike most other churches, UU churches often have members who are Humanist and/or Atheist.

    According to the UUA’s denominational web site, 19% of Unitarian Universalists say that they did not believe in any type of god.

  • Hm. Why would I, as an atheist, want a chaplain? Why would I go to hear him preach?

    There are times when I want atheists to be more organized, to have more community, but then again I’m not so sure. Community is a double-edged sword, and I always seem to get cut on it.
