Godless: How an Evangelical Preacher Became One of America's Leading Atheists - Dan Barker

"Valuable in the human story are the reflections of intelligent and ethical people who listen to the voice of reason and who allow it to vanquish bigotry and superstition. This book is a classic example."
—Christopher Hitchens, author of God is Not Great

"The most eloquent witness of internal delusion that I know—a triumphantly smiling refugee from the zany, surreal world of American fundamentalist Protestantism—is Dan Barker."
—Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion

After 19 years as an evangelical preacher, missionary, and Christian songwriter, Dan Barker 'threw out the bathwater and discovered there is no baby there.' Barker, who is now co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (America's largest organization of atheists and agnostics), describes the intellectual and psychological path he followed in moving from fundamentalism to freethought. The four sections in Godless--Rejecting God, Why I Am An Atheist, What's Wrong With Christianity, and Life is Good!--include chapters on bible problems, the historicity of Jesus, morality, the Kalam Cosmological argument, the unbelievable resurrection, and much more. Barker relates the positive benefits from trusting in reason and human kindness instead of living in fear of false judgment and moral condemnation. FFRF

Thank you so much for the re-up! I'm on chapter 4 already and Dan's story is amazing. I'm going to have to buy it on Kindle as I want to be able to highlight and take down notes. Also Dan's book is well worth it so far.
Thanks again!
