U of Chicago, Public Law Working Paper No. 465
This is a new preface to the forthcoming paperback edition of Why Tolerate Religion? (Princeton, cloth edition, 2013). I briefly discuss the reception of the book, in both Europe and the United States, focusing especially on the response of some conservative Christian readers and "scholars." I also clarify some themes from the book, and explain why this book does not devote much time to the topic of the possible rationality of religious belief.
