The performance gives an excellent reading, though hearing this reader perform the phone book would have had more unexpected revelations. The story of a woman with a troubled childhood and a serious case of depression, "Once an Atheist" demonstrates the greatest potential harms religion can do: dissuade you from evidence based reasoning and encourage you to treat mental illness with placebos. Had the story presented a more interesting revelation (that community in a time of personal crisis can help one overcome serious mental anguish), it might have earned a higher rating. I was hoping for a compelling argument in favor of belief. What I got was the typical bashing of atheism and a dangerous message about how to respond to a crisis in mental health. I strongly recommend skipping this book.
