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.

Logically fallacious to its core.

The book is fallacious throughout, enacting almost every form of fallacy as evidence for the argument. This is especially a problem considering the author states early on in the work if the goal to use logic to disprove the existence of God. There are moments in which the author does provide some argument that makes a good point but at this point I cannot listen to another cherry picked example from a cherry picked version of the Bible. This is why you argue from original sources (Hebrew and Greek in this case) and not translations. The narrator does a good job reading, keeping an even tone and pace. Well done.

Speed Reading

I find the content extremely interesting but I just can't enjoy listening to this book because the narrator seems to be racing through the material. Very disappointing.

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.

Didn't go as in depth as I was hoping

I was hoping for more depth. This is very brief and reads more like a bulleted list of problems than a deep analysis. Also, the narrarator mispronounced a word from a very popular verse from 1 Corinthians, saying that "love always preserves" instead of "love always perseveres".

Short, but Good Introduction to the Subject

If you find yourself having to defend your lack of faith in Christianity, this book is a great introduction on how to do so. McAfee goes over the basic arguments that can indeed disprove the religion to anyone who isn't already a believer.

The voice performance is THE WORST.

If you want the experience of a cheesy DJ putting his lips against your ear and mumbling from the back of his throat, then this book is for you.

Got questions?

I've listened to a number of these books pointing out the contradictions in Christianity and the bible. This one is just as good as the others.. They all help to clarify questions one might have in their mind, if one is open enough to accept facts and isn't afraid to question the status quo. If you don't want your faith tested or questioned, then simply don't listen/read this kind of book.
