Publisher's Summary

Throughout human history religions have been a staggeringly powerful force in the hearts and minds of their adherents and in society as a whole. They have moved men and women to inspiring acts of bravery and spurred the creation of some of the most sublime works of art, and arguably have been pivotal in the creation of stable societies and the social order we see today. At the same time, though, they have also been responsible for some of the most heinous atrocities ever committed and have imposed many arbitrary limits on individuals that serve as a massive detriment to their well-being. As time has marched on, we have developed new systems for making sense of the natural world and for living together harmoniously. The barriers that separate us have eroded and we have built alternatives to the systems that religion has used to maintain order.

This book aims to look at some of the notions that atheists hold. The first two chapters are an exploration into the factual inadequacies of faith. The third will touch on the social evils of religion and their deep rooting in the very nature and psychology of faith itself. The last three chapters will address the alternative, non-theistic solutions to three separate problems previously solved by faith.

Meh

Nothing new here. The material isn't bad but not revolutionary. Monotone reader. Glad it was cheap

Short and good

It is not an essay over atheism, however provides good value and information for the price. It is worth knowing his arguments to summarize one's thought and maybe verbalize in a dinner's table.

A good read, covers what Athesist already feel.

I liked this book it covers a lot about how I feel about my Atheism. Its a good book also if ya wanna debate with a Theist cause it covers real basic and obvious topics to refute Christianity.

Wonderful

A great foundation of anyone (such as myself) who wishes to explore the priciples and possibilites of Atheism. The book stimulated a multitude of questions, for which I am looking forward to discoving the answers. This is not a book for someone who is merely looking to trash religion. It's much more than that.
