Relax, It’s Just God Book Review

Decision Making , Religion / January 3, 2016

A few couple decades ago, being religiously unaffiliated was taboo. Children were raised on their knees, with eyes shut tightly and hands clasped together in fervent prayer. However, in a world where liberalism is on the rise and religious affiliation is on a sleepy decline, comes the emergence of a new generation of parents: the seculars. The question then shifts from, “How do I teach my child about God?” to “How do I educate my child about the gods?” In her book Relax, It’s Just God, Wendy Thomas Russel talks about raising open-minded and tolerant children in a world where the belief in a deity is still somewhat of a social necessity.

She takes on a slightly humorous yet scholarly approach to a sensitive and controversial topic whilst still maintaining a compassionate tone. Meant for non-religious parents who wish to teach their kids about religion...
