Publisher's summary

Seth Andrews wasn't an idiot during his 30 years as an evangelical Christian. He wasn't unintelligent, nor did his IQ shift when he ultimately left religion entirely. He considered himself thoughtful, moral, reasonable, and at least as smart as the average person. In other words, he wasn't an idiot. Yet strangely, he often sounded like one.

In any other context, Christians would likely smirk, scoff, or recoil at many of their "normal" beliefs and practices, reenacted Easter crucifixions, eating monthly communion "flesh", singing hymns about being washed in blood, and the embrace of a Bible containing scripture verses about golden hemorrhoids, apocalypse dragons, and human sacrifice, So what gives?

Are these notions embraced only because they're familiar? Do they make any sense? And, do they cause otherwise reasonable people to sound like idiots?

Seth Andrews admits that, for himself, the answer was a definite "yes". For everyone else? Listen to the audiobook and decide.
