In the last few years, a host of books have suggested that God is an illusion and religion is a dangerous myth. In response to this movement, known as "the new atheism," Rabbi David Wolpe offers a thought-provoking look at faith and history, faith and science, and the way faith functions in the world. His newest book, "Why Faith Matters," is a powerful argument for the place of God, religion and faith in today's world. October 28, 2008
