About the book:

"A lively manifesto...For the discipline's specific application to the matter at hand, I've seen nothing that matches the fury of The "God" Part of the Brain, which perhaps explains why it's earned something of a cult following." -Salon.com

In this revised cult classic, the author offers a systematic, scientific argument that shows why belief in God is an inherent evolutionary mechanism that enables us to cope with our greatest, universal terror-death.

Originally published in 1996, Matthew Alper's book is a personal journey that has been adopted by over 25 colleges and universities and has sparked commentary by world-renowned scientists such as E. O. Wilson and E. Fuller Torry.

Here for the first time is a reasoned, compassionate, spiritual journey into the world of science, where God is not so much an illusion as a hallmark of the very way in which we think.

"[E]xcellent reading."
-Edward O. Wilson, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner
