Review quote

School Library JournalThis book addresses a number of thought-provoking questions and offers several paragraphs of commentary for each one.There are no definitive answers here. Baggini encourages youngsters to think about questions such as "Can we prove God exists?" and "Why would God allow evil?" and to develop their own ideas and critical-thinking abilities. . . . The bright, modernist cartoon illustrations lighten the heavy subject and provide humorous asides throughout. . . . This is an excellent title for sparking conversation and inspiring personal philosophizing.show more
