Full title: "Losing Faith In Faith: From Preacher to Atheist"
A phenomenal book
written by Dan Barker
. It details his conversion from fundamentalist preacher
to preeminent atheist
, gives arguments for atheism
, and details reasons that Christianity
can in fact be harmful. This book manages to be both an autobiography
and a reference manual
It is a useful tool for any atheist
who finds her or himself in frequent debate
s, and an intriguing read for any Christian
who wants to understand the atheist
viewpoint. It's even been called the "Atheist Bible
", although I personally don't like that name as it implies the book is infalliable.
