The Secular Bible: Why Nonbelievers Must Take Religion Seriously (New York: Cambridge University Press, 2005).

It is rare to find a well-researched scholarly book written with such jumpy energy and serious humor.”

Journal of the American Academy of Religion







Heresy in the University: The Black Athena Controversy and the Responsibilities of American Intellectuals (New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers University Press, 1999).

Berlinerblau’s ability to integrate far-reaching serious scholarly and ethical issues within the substantive content of the Black Athena debate is impressive.

Vow and the Popular Religious Groups of: A Philological and Sociological Inquiry (Sheffield, UK: Sheffield Academic Press, 1996).

Considering that Berlinerblau’s treatment of the vow is largely theoretical, he is to be complimented on the lucidity and penetration of his study.

    A rousing defense of America’s secular roots as our nation’s best way to protect freedom of—and from—religion.
    "How to Be Secular serves as an important reminder that . . . as I have noted in the past . . . we protect our rights to our personal beliefs by preserving the rights of our neighbors to believe otherwise. I agree wholeheartedly with Berlinerblau’s argument and highly recommend this powerful book.”
    —MARIO M. CUOMO, former New York Governor
    “This insightful book is not designed to convince you of the non-existence of God or the afterlife; it exists to convince both the non-theistic and the religious that if we don’t find a way to work together, we will all pay a heavy price. Berlinerblau makes a compelling, urgent case, with rigorous regard to history as well as a keen eye for the relevance of today’s many new variations of fundamentalism.”
    —BARRY LYNN, executive director, Americans United for Separation of Church and State
