Oprah said it was 17 years, but it was actually 19 years between my first sermon at the age of 15 and my last sermon at the age of 34.
Part 1 of Godless, “Rejecting God”, tells the story of how I moved from devout preacher to atheist and beyond.
Part 2, “Why I Am an Atheist”, presents my philosophical reasons for unbelief.
Part 3, “What’s Wrong with Christianity”, critiques the bible (its reliability as well as its morality) and the historical evidence for Jesus.
Part 4, “Life Is Good!”, comes back to my personal story, taking a case to the United States Supreme Court, dealing with personal trauma, and experiencing the excitement of Adventures in Atheism.
From the introduction by Dan Barker: “Millions of good people live moral, happy, loving, meaningful lives without believing in a god.”
