"The Necessity of Secularism discusses one of the most vital issues facing America and the world, and it does so with the logic and respectful tolerance for differences that itself expresses the very spirit of secularism. No matter what one's views on the existence of God, this is a unifying book. I can only hope that it will be read by all those for whom it is intended, which is, in a word, everyone." --Rebecca Goldstein, author, Plato at the GooglePlex
"This is a first-rate book. If you want to understand why a secular state is so important, why it's not the same thing as an atheist state, and why religious people should embrace, not fear, secularism, you should start with The Necessity of Secularism. Lindsay's book is entertaining, passionate, and presents a beautifully clear and well-argued case." --Stephen Law, author, Believing Bullshit
