Again, Harris hits home with a direct address to the true, uncompromising Evangel-American. His tone is pleasant, fair, and startlingly uncompromising.
This couldn't be much more timely and relevant.
The narration is smooth and crisp.
Speaking about my own personal journey deconverting from Christianity to non-religious, it was this book is what did it for me. I am always impressed by the clarity of thought and communication by Sam Harris. Nice work. Every Christian should read this book.
Say something about yourself!
This refutes, very well I think, everything a Christian believes. Any thinking Christian (an oxymoron) would no longer be a believer after reading this book. All organized religions have outlived their usefulness in the developed world where people have access to education. In the modern world, organized religions may, in fact, be the root of all evil. Amen
The openness of the discussion.
Mr. Harris's ability to discuss subjects that would be a taboo to most writers
Good Clear Commentary
Mr. Harris addressed tough issues that most would be afraid to discuss.
I appreciated the honesty to address what many of us feel but are not comfortable to discuss openly.
Sam Harris poses questions that many Christians cannot answer. He clearly disagrees with all religions and is atheist but that does not take away from his credibility. I am not a christian and still found this book very interesting. I really like his style of writing as well, it's more of a conversation then a letter/book. I suggest everyone read this book, even if you don't agree with it, even if you're a christian, you don't know if your faith is true faith unless you can question it.
This should be required reading. If I were rich I would pay Audible to make this a free download. At the very least this should accompany any purchase of "A Purpose Driven Life".
Perhaps some funder can make this available for free. This should be required reading (or listening) for every American. It about time that somenoe exposes religion for what it really is. The Emperor really has NO clothes.
I would and have recommended this book to friends. Sam Harris lays out an intelligent argument against all the old religious beliefs a lot of us hold dear and never question. He is not as aggressive as Hitches nor as indignant as Dawkins but he makes his point clear.
Use this book if you need to explain your stance to your religious family.
Because Mr. Harris takes the time to explain his views in the simplest of terms this book has been helpful in helping me explain why I believe the way I do to my very religious family. He remains respectful but honest and provides plenty of examples that are very easy to identify with.
