Closely related work

I have a long list of books and other resources to organize and comment on, but will begin here with a small selection of books that are either very similar to my work in one way or another or that have provided me with particular inspiration.

Alain De Botton, Religion for Atheists: A Non-believer's Guide to the Uses of Religion (2012 Pantheon (paperback by Vintage)).
de Botton doesn’t go quite deep enough, hasn’t quite bought into his own idea, is not quite willing to give religions the respect that atheists could sincerely give them.

Eagleton review in The Guardian by Terry Eagleton. Scathing New York Times by David Brooks.
Chris Stedman, Faitheist: how an atheist found common ground with the religious (2012 Beacon Press).
Stedman seems to me to be doing valuable work in bridging the worlds of atheist activism and interfaith dialogue.

Science Blogs review by Chad Orzel. Fairly sympathetic. Interesting comments.
Hans Joas, The Genesis of Values (2000 University of Chicago Press).
Highly academic, but, to me at least, powerfully stirring.

Charles Taylor, A Secular Age (2007 The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press).
Taylor’s work seems to be on its way into the canon of contemporary philosophy. His earlier Sources of the Self shaped my sense of how we come to embrace certain values. Joas (just above), though, gave me much more clarity on the matter.
