    What do we believe? And in God's name why? Lewis Black has the answers. Or at least his answers. He survived Hebrew school and a bar mitzvah (barely), was a 60's college student who saw the parallels between religious rapture and drug-induced visions (even if none of his friends did), explored the self-actualization movement of the 70's (and the self-indulgence it engendered), and turned a cynical eye toward politicians who don the cloak of religious rectitude to cover up their own hypocrisy.

    Would you listen to Me of Little Faith again? Why?

    I have read the paperback book twice. I have listened to the audibile three times. Hearing him vocalize the exclamation makes all the difference.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Me of Little Faith?

    From beginning to end.


    Have you listened to any of Lewis Black’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have seen his live show twice. While the audibile gives you the voice of this comical genius I would still have to say seeing him live is better.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Insanity becomes his reality.


    Any additional comments?

    As an Atheist I love to read books that challenge religions. Lewis is not an out right Atheist, yet he does challenge all religions. Great work. Great sound. Great overall content.

  • God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

    Story
    (1926)

    In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris' recent best-seller, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos.

    "The title says it all.."

    Would you listen to God Is Not Great again? Why?

    Yes, and I have listened to it several times.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I couldn't pick a favorite chapter. This book is great from the opening line to the closing remarks.


    What about Christopher Hitchens’s performance did you like?

    Christopher has a voice that is spell binding. Hearing his expression in the text improved the reading experience. The book is a great source of knowledge.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No I wouldn't call it extreme. Enlightening would be a much better word.
