Alain de Botton is a non-believer. Yet he argues religions have important things to teach the secular world. He’s written a book explaining ways in which atheists should look to religion for some solutions to contemporary ills. In doing so, he hopes to move the tired old debate between atheists and believers onto more fruitful ground. Blending deep respect with total impiety, de Botton proposes that agnostics and atheists should stop mocking religions and start stealing from them.
