Publisher's Summary

Nearly a third of Americans under the age of thirty have no religious affiliation, the highest in any recorded generation. In this growing segment of "nones" are many young Atheists who have faced prejudice in their high schools and communities for standing up for their constitutional right of freedom from religion. You'll hear some of their stories in this book, whether they're protesting their school's public prayers at football games and graduations or sitting out the "under God" portion of the Pledge of Allegiance.

These atheist students know their rights and have fought for them, sometimes at tremendous personal cost. Their examples serve as inspiration for all the young atheists out there who live in communities where school often feels no different from church and teachers are no different from preachers. This handbook is a resource for parents, teachers, friends, and young atheists themselves. Hemant Mehta, "The Friendly Atheist", blogger at patheos.com, discusses how to deal with teachers and administrators who promote faith in public schools, handle the peer pressure and ostracism that may come with being an outspoken atheist, and create successful student groups that encourage conversation over conversion.

Interesting take on the young Atheist movement

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would. And it wouldn't just be the non religious ones. Not only does Mehta's book explain how important it is for young atheists to be involved in the atheist scene, it also illustrates how our rights are constantly being infringed or outright attacked.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Young Atheist's Survival Guide?

The closing chapter. Mehta clearly left on a high note showing a very bright future.

Which character – as performed by Hemant Mehta – was your favorite?

n.a.

a must for young minds

trying to find answers, is just as difficult as asking the questions. But it's good to know that you are not alone.
