Description

One man shares the story of his transformation from evangelical Christian to atheist and examines the train of thought that brought him there.

After almost twenty years of evangelical preaching, missionizing, and Christian songwriting, Dan Barker "threw out the bathwater and discovered that there is no baby." In Godless, Barker describes the intellectual and psychological path he followed in moving from fundamentalism to freethought. Godless includes sections on biblical morality, the historicity of Jesus, biblical contradictions, the unbelievable resurrection, and much more. It is an arsenal for skeptics and a direct challenge to believers. Along the way, Barker relates the positive benefit readers will experience from learning to trust in reason and human kindness instead of living in fear of false judgment and moral condemnation.

Advance Praise for Godless

"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

"Godless was a revelation to me. I don't think anyone can match the (devastating!) clarity, intensity, and honesty which Dan Barker brings to the journey -- faith to reason, childhood to growing up, fantasy to reality, intoxication to sobriety." -- Oliver Sacks, author of Musicophilia

"In Godless, Barker recounts his journey from evangelical preacher to atheist activist, and along the way explains precisely why it is not only okay to be an atheist, it is something in which to be proud." -- Michael Shermer, publisher of Skeptic Magazine

"Godless is a fascinating memoir and a handbook for debunking theism. But most of all, it is a moving testimonial to one man's emotional and intellectual rigor in acclaiming critical thinking." -- Robert Sapolsky author of Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers
