In response to his award-winning best seller The End of Faith, Sam Harris received thousands of letters from Christians excoriating him for not believing in God. Letter to A Christian Nation is his courageous and controversial reply. Using rational argument, Harris offers a measured refutation of the beliefs that form the core of fundamentalist Christianity. Addressing current topics ranging from intelligent design and stem-cell research to the connections between religion and violence, Letter to A Christian Nation boldly challenges the influence that faith has on public life in the United States.

As usual, Sam Harris has hit another home run.
His books have helped me to accept my life long flirtation with the idea that there is no god. Now I feel freed and empowered instead of intimidated and scared.
Brilliant hour-long breakdown of the harms that we suffer at the hands of of the pious.
Amazing piece of work. I love the mental clarity, honesty, and directness in communicating a message about how religion has done more damage than good to humanity. I highly recommend this book as "must read" in every household that wants humanity to progress in a civil and rational way.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has the slightest question about their faith. Or anyone wondering why religion in the Middle East may be bringing us towards destruction. Sam carefully breaks down the falsehoods and fallacies of belief and asked the reader to consider their beliefs intellectually.
