This is a book about religion from a secular standpoint which nevertheless takes its subject seriously. Contrary to some secularists I don't think religion is likely to disappear any time soon. I try to develop a way of thinking about religion, using two main clues: language and narrative. Narrative is how most religious people encounter their religions, because humans are story-telling animals.
