The Devil's Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions is a 2009 book by David Berlinski. It discusses atheism and religion, defending the religious point of view.


A review by the Christian Apologetics Alliance stated: "Berlinski’s biography and book raises at least two questions: first, given the book’s powerful arguments in favor of religious belief, why is the author not religious? And second, given that the author is not religious, doesn’t this spirited defense of religion deserve an honest hearing?"[1]

Writing in Touchstone magazine, Matthew Dowling said: "The Devil's Delusion is appropriate for the pastor and scholar, and for all those who are interested in an academic's response to the New Atheism. Berlinski's writing is well informed, pointed, and highly entertaining."[2][dead link]
