Dr. Richard Carrier, world-renowned philosopher and historian, explains the four reasons he does not accept the Christian religion, describing four facts of the world that, had they been different, he would believe. Those four reasons are God's silence, God's inaction, the lack of evidence, and the way the universe looks exactly like a godless universe would, and not at all like a Christian universe would, even down to its very structure. Dr. Carrier addresses all the usual replies to these claims, in ways you might not have heard before, relying on his wide experience in debating and studying these issues all over the world for more than 15 years.
A perfect book to introduce yourself, or your friends, to why fewer educated people are embracing Christianity than ever before.

I would recommend this book to a friend, the arguments presented in this book not only do a good job of proving God does not exist, but shows the problems with Christianity as well and why one should consider leaving Christianity.
It was 4 arguments not a story. Well done.
Since he wrote it he had a very natural flow to his read. As if he was simply explaining his position to you in person.
There were some funny parts but it is hard to cry over arguments.
I found it hard to hear him suggest atheism would hold to a particular position when I think it would have been more appropriate to suggest 'naturalism' or 'evolution' or modern cosmology hold to this view, not atheism as such.
Highly recommended! If you are looking for arguments to flumux your favorite apologist friend and send them scurrying to hide in agnosticism, there is a wealth of ammunition here.
Speaks clearly and was easy to understand.
