This very personal account details the struggle the author has as he moves from total acceptance of Religion to rejection. Many who have "faith" will complain that religion and faith are separate. But the author does a very good job as he relates his story. He accepts religion and faith as it is the accepted thing to do. He finds safety in numbers and certainly, all cannot be wrong. But he realizes over time the intellectual emptiness that exists in accepting "faith" without critical thinking. When he cannot ignore the repeated inconsistencies between what so-called people of faith profess and what they do, he reaches the breaking point. But can he still be accepted in a society that, for the most part, considers people of faith as normal? Hardbound,

Sum - hardback, David Eagelman death afterlife Sum: 40 Tales from the Afterlives - hardback, David Eagleman Price: $19.95
David Eagleman, a scientist at the Baylor College of Medicine, offers an interesting look at death and beyond in “Sum.” (By the way, he used this old Latin phrase as the title - of course meaning “I am.”) He presents 40 different short stories of varying gods and the afterlives they create, all of which are mutually exclusive - one cannot believe in more than one without contradicting oneself. In this way, he causes readers to think about beliefs and why they believe them. Atheists will love this book, and love giving it to Fundie friends. It also contains kernels of wisdom that people can apply to their own lives; for example, one story he “calculates” the time someone can spend in a lifetime brushing teeth, eating, watching tv, etc. (One of our staff owns this book and just adores it; she said it is “a book on living rather than a book on dying.”) Excellent reading!

The Portable Atheist Christopher Hitchens agnostic freethinker freethought The Portable Atheist Price: $17.50
The Portable Atheist - Christopher Hitchens. "Religion invents a problem where none exists, by describing the wicked as also made in the image of god and the sexually nonconformist as existing in a state of incurable mortal sin that can incidentally cause floods and earthquakes." The readings Hitchens chooses to bolster his argument are indeed engaging and important. Hobbes, Spinoza, Mill and Marx are some of the heavyweights representing a philosophical viewpoint. From the world of literature the author assembles excerpts from Shelley, Twain, Conrad, Orwell and Updike. What these dynamic writers are railing against is a strawman: an immature, fundamentalist, outdated, and even embarrassing style of religion that many intelligent believers have long since cast off.
