Disproving Christianity and Other Secular Writings (2nd edition, revised) | [David G. McAfee]

Disproving Christianity and Other Secular Writings (2nd edition, revised)

Disproving Christianity and Other Secular Writings compiles popular and lesser-known arguments against the principles established by the Christian canon. Using a phenomenological approach to build his case based on in-depth study, McAfee analyzes the Hebrew Scriptures and New Testament doctrine to build a logical and reasonable case against their validity. From contradictions between lived and portrayed religions to factual errors within the texts themselves, no stone is left unturned in this fully updated and expanded refutation of Christianity.

Publisher's Summary

Not only do I believe that it is possible to maintain moral standards without the crutch of religion but I would argue that it is the only way to achieve true goodness.

Disproving Christianity and Other Secular Writings compiles popular and lesser-known arguments against the principles established by the Christian canon. Using a phenomenological approach to build his case based on in-depth study at the University of California, Santa Barbara McAfee analyzes the Hebrew Scriptures and New Testament doctrine to build a logical and reasonable case against their validity. From contradictions between lived and portrayed religions to factual errors within the texts themselves, no stone is left unturned in this fully updated and expanded refutation of Christianity.

    Story
    "Excellent intro to the secular point of view."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Disproving Christianity and Other Secular Writings (2nd edition, revised) to be better than the print version?

    I recently had about 4 hours to kill while giving platelets at my local Red Cross and decided to download 'Discovering Christianity' from Audible.com as it was the perfect length and I was curious about what it had to say. Disclaimer: I'm already an atheist.

    As an audiobook, this may be better than the print version. Seems we always are trying to find time to read something, but between commuting or taking a medium distance drive somewhere, this book fills the time perfectly, and if you happen to have a Christian in the car with you, all the better. Might have been better with Joel Osteen doing it, but he probably wasn't available.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As to the content, it was very good. I've already read a lot of secular books but David's did provide stuff that was new to me. He could have mentioned the engineering problems facing building a wooden ark with ancient ship-building technology, but he clearly got the point across.

    And if you are a Christian, this should give you a lot to think about. It does not rant and rave the way some angry atheists do, but presents out a series of arguments laid out very logically and with clear conclusions.Heartily recommend this for folks on both sides of the fence.


    What about David Smalley’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was excellent. Very easy to understand what he was saying.


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

    "The Case Against Christianity."

    Story
    "To the point and hard to dispute."
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was quite impressed. David has assembled a huge stockpile of Biblical logical fallacies and contradictions. While it seems that the one knock down argument that cannot be ignored or poorly rationalized, continues to elude Atheist arguments, this audio book comes as close as possible to a logically irrefutable argument.


    Any additional comments?

    Lots of bang for the buck. Edited down and distilled to "point after point" with no filler. Any theologian who listens to this barrage of rational assaults may become rightly infuriated or frustrated after being forced to view their juggling of so many irrational ideas from the outside.

    Story
    "An awesome research paper."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Disproving Christianity and Other Secular Writings (2nd edition, revised) to be better than the print version?

    The Narrator makes me feel like I'm is sitting in the lecture hall listening to a captivating professor; the kind of prof who sits on the desk and just holds an open forum.


    If you’ve listened to books by David G. McAfee before, how does this one compare?

    This book is a little dryer than his other book: "Mom, Dad, I'm an Atheist", but that is to be expected.


    Which character – as performed by David Smalley – was your favorite?

    There weren't really characters in the book.


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

    I found myself nodding my head in approval a lot.

    Story
    "Didn't Add Much to the Topic"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have given more detail.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I found the additional essays more informative than the main book. The main book just rehashed the same arguments that I've already read and heard. They are not things that the Christians that I deal with take as serious criticism. These arguments are the things that they already have, albeit unsatisfying to me, answers to.
