Publisher's Summary

And then Noah loaded the dinosaurs onto the ark.

Assertions like these seem comical until you realize that many Christian parents aren't kidding when they teach them to their children as facts. Every day, impressionable young minds are conditioned to blindly accept wild biblical tales of floating zoos, talking shrubbery, 900-year-old humans, the undead, curses, levitation, demon/human hybrids and men who obtain super-human strength from the length of their hair. Allegiance to these teachings is expected, often demanded. Curiosity is muted. Doubt is frowned upon as a sin. And for those who dare to raise a dissenting hand, the threat of Hell looms ominously. A former religious radio host raised in the cradle of Christianity, Seth Andrews battled his own doubts for many years. His attempts to reconcile faith and the facts led him to a conclusion previously unthinkable, and this once-true believer ultimately became the founder of one of the most popular atheist communities on the internet.

    "exceptionally well written, beautifully performed"

    The story of Seth Andrews' deconversion from Christianity is both compelling in its honesty and lovingly sensitive to those who find comfort in their faith. The author recounts his tale with self depicting humor. He is incredibly open and genuine about his experience. Andrews is a brilliant story teller. He reads his story with personal appeal to his listeners, employing all the skills from his seasoned radio career.

    "Seth Andrews is amazing!"

    For someone to share such a personal sorry is amazing in and of itself, but for it to be so entertaining and so relatable and so moving is even more impressive. Even if you are a believer wondering how people end up on the other side this is a fantastic book for you. If you are a non believer looking for someone to relate to then you will be right at home.

    "Seth...more than a pretty voice!"

    Immensely enjoyed this book. Seth's low mellow tone and wise, revealing words will connect and compel.

    "Seth Andrews gave a voice to the doubters "

    If the author can remove his blinkers, so can the rest of us. I am curious about those "born again" Christians and the Muslims, of which this book scarcely mentioned.

    I also am a guy with a twin sister like Seth. A comforting and inspiring book for a new atheist.

    "Good listen"

    Seth's story is very interesting to listen from perspective of someone living in a fairly liberal and atheistic country. That, and his voice is one of those you could listen to approximately forever regardless of topic. Great delivery.

    "Nice to know I'm not alone"

    As a recent "convert" from Christianity. It was very comforting to hear that someone else had the same doubts and fears. While listening to this book keep in mind that it IS Seth's biography so you'll hear a lot about the thinking atheist site and community (awesome source for info and community while struggling with losing your religion btw).

    Story
    "Out of the ball park!"
    Where does Deconverted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This audio book ranks toward the top of my life. Excellently narrated by one heckuva buttery voice. Could listen all day long.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Seth tells his story of leaving Christianity. He's lovable and relatable.


    Which character – as performed by Seth Andrews – was your favorite?

    Doh.


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

    I like the title ... it tells it all.


    Any additional comments?

    As an ExChristian, I found Seth's story a comfort (I am not alone). His story is very different from my own, which made this truly fascinating. For those of us who have left the faith, we need to hear from others as the transitions out of religion can be quite taxing. I found Seth's story helpful for that reason. Well told, thoughtful and thought provoking.

    Story
    "Fantastic!"

    Before purchasing the book, I was worried that the material would be a repetition of what I had already known from listening to Seth's podcasts and reading "Holy Cows". Fortunately, plenty of it was new and I enjoyed it very much! Seth drew a lively picture of his life before and after the deconversion, and I feel we have gotten to know him more as a person and an activist through this book.

    Furthermore, the whole book had a refreshing and energetic vibe to it. It was a joy to listen to.
