Plot to Kill God by Paul Froese

Book Description

Paul Froese explores the nature of religious faith in a provocative examination of the most massive atheism campaign in human history. That campaign occurred after the 1917 Russian Revolution, when Soviet plans for a new Marxist utopia included the total eradication of all religion. Even though the Soviet Union's attempt to secularize its society was quite successful at crushing the institutional and ritual manifestations of religion, its leaders were surprised at the persistence of religious belief. Froese's account reveals how atheism, when taken to its extreme, can become as dogmatic and oppressive as any religious faith and illuminates the struggle for individual expression in the face of social repression.

On Purpose by Paul Froese On Purpose, Hardback (February 2016)

On Purpose is a sociological conversation about the meaning of life. Drawing on a huge national survey, Paul Froese examines what is important to Americans and why.

America's Four Gods by Paul Froese America's Four Gods, Paperback (August 2015)

America's Four Gods is an unprecedented investigation into what average Americans think about God. Utilizing survey data and in-depth interviews, Froese and Bader demonstrate how Americans have four distinct conceptions of God and how these different Gods lie at the heart of the major social, moral, and political divisions in our country.
