Publisher's Summary

"Forty-four percent of the American population is convinced that Jesus will return to judge the living and the dead sometime in the next 50 years," writes Sam Harris. "Imagine the consequences if any significant component of the U.S. government actually believed that the world was about to end and that its ending would be glorious. The fact that nearly half of the American population apparently believes this, purely on the basis of religious dogma, should be considered a moral and intellectual emergency."

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.

Don't miss Harris' The End of Faith.

    "Great, but would be even better if read by Sam himself"

    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.

    "Sam Harris Short"

    Very short but to the point. It is not as beautifully written as a Hitchens, but within the same realm of thinking for certain.

    "Everyone must read"

    One of the most important books of our time. To ignore this book is to purposely choose to live with a blindfold on.

    "Truly amazing, honest and important work. "

    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.

    "Excellent book"

    A brief, well written set of arguments for his position. Very good read and an excellent companion to his other works.

    "A Contemplative expose of Christian belief"

    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.
