The Bible and The God Delusion on the coffee table

Pamela-Jelimo-in-the-Olym-002

From my interview with Kenya’s teenage athletics star, Pamela Jelimo, and her husband, Peter Murey, which appeared in the Observer Sport Monthly a week or so ago:

“Pamela disappears into the kitchen to boil the kettle, returning after a few minutes with a flask of hot, milky tea. While she is gone, Murey tells me about the book he is reading, Richard Dawkins’s The God Delusion. It’s an unusual choice in a country where church and daily prayer are an almost unquestioned part of life. “I don’t agree with it, but it is good to challenge your views,” he says, putting Dawkins down on the coffee table next to a copy of the Bible.”
