Review: ‘Bad Faith,’ a Dr. Paul A. Offit Book on Religion and Modern Medicine

currently reading - an excellent explanation of religious resistance to medicine

ny times

An important and fascinating book. For more than a decade, Paul Offit has been relentless in his exposure of forces that can undermine the life-saving advances of modern medicine. His latest effort, Bad Faith, combines gripping storytelling with an insider's knowledge. Offit offers a compassionate and clear-headed take on religion that puts children's well-being where it should be: at the center of the discussion. A must-read for anyone interested in the challenges of public health in the twenty-first century.”

—Seth Mnookin, Associate Director of The Graduate Program in Science Writing, MIT, and author of The Panic Virus: The True Story Behind the Vaccine-Autism Controversy

Paul A. Offit, MD, is a Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and Director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. The author of several books, he lives in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania.

  1. I don't know.
    An expert in vaccination, located in Philadelphia, affiliated with one of the most "popular" (but undesired) hospital for Lakewooders,
    Yet the leading opponent (RSK) to vaccination is in his backyard, and he can't change his mind.
