Socrates in the City Hosts Author of Devil's Delusion

From Host Eric Metaxas:
On June 12 Socrates in the City will host entertaining and brilliant polymath David Berlinski, who will talk on the subject of his book "The Devil's Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions." Berlinski lives in Paris and is very rarely on our shores. Trust us: you simply do not want to miss him.
David BerlinskiWilliam F. Buckley has written: "Berlinski's book The Devil's Delusion is everything desirable: it is idiomatic, profound, brilliantly polemical, amusing, and of course vastly learned. I congratulate him." We couldn't agree more.
