About the Author

A mathematics teacher working in South East London, Kester Brewin has also become one of the leading thinkers on the philosophy of religion and technology. The power of his work lies in the synthesis of ideas from disparate fields, playing the history of piracy off a psychotherapeutic reading of Star Wars, or pushing Harry Potter to play alongside both Batman and Shakespeare's Prospero. Accessible, challenging and richly rewarding, his work has been hailed on both sides of the Atlantic as some of the most courageous and unflinching theological writing of recent years, charting his own path from the orthodox belief of his childhood to a radical death-of-God reading of Christian atheism. Brewin is a sought-after speaker, and has presented at festivals throughout mainland Europe, the UK and the US. In 2013 he presented at the prestigious TEDx Exeter event on his work exploring our enduring fascination with pirates. He has also written and presented for BBC Radio 4, and is a regular contrbutor on technology in the Huffington Post. He has also written for Adbusters Magazine and the national education press in the UK. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I don't regularly post book reviews since I don't personally care what individuals who I don't know think of a book. But for what its worth, this is my absolute favorite book of the last 10 years! Kester takes you through sociology, economics, philosophy, art, theology and human consciousness, all the while, framing the entire thing in a highly entertaining retelling of some of the most infamous pirate stories of all time. I bought the book when it first came out and regularly have a stack of 15-20 copies that I give away all year long. Some people adore it, and others hate it, but wherever you find yourself at the end, I can tell you that its not going to be boring. Read it.
