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.

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.
Wonderfully written with good oration. Sam Harris is a brilliant writer and says what many think but either can't, won't, or don't care to say.

Really good stuff to expose the silly brand of Christianity that we have so much of in this country. I feel sorry for him though that he can only reason through his own interpretation. Ironically similar to what he accuses people of faith of. There is some real anger and disgust evident. A precursor possibly to the changing culture? Tough times ahead for Christians.
With brilliant clarity of thought and citing their own reference book Harris provides a pithy critique of Christianity as a basis for morality and ethics.
