In a post-9/11 world, New Atheists like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris rail not only against Islam but all religions. They view them as dangerous, immoral, and irrational. Some of their more strident comments are directed against the God of the Old Testament as harsh, racist, genocidal, and oppressive. Is God a Moral Monster? responds to these and other charges. It examines many challenging biblical texts, places them in their historical context, and seeks to correct a number of popular caricatures propounded by critics.
