Publisher's Summary

And then Noah loaded the dinosaurs onto the ark.
Assertions like these seem comical until you realize that many Christian parents aren't kidding when they teach them to their children as facts. Every day, impressionable young minds are conditioned to blindly accept wild biblical tales of floating zoos, talking shrubbery, 900-year-old humans, the undead, curses, levitation, demon/human hybrids and men who obtain super-human strength from the length of their hair. Allegiance to these teachings is expected, often demanded. Curiosity is muted. Doubt is frowned upon as a sin. And for those who dare to raise a dissenting hand, the threat of Hell looms ominously. A former religious radio host raised in the cradle of Christianity, Seth Andrews battled his own doubts for many years. His attempts to reconcile faith and the facts led him to a conclusion previously unthinkable, and this once-true believer ultimately became the founder of one of the most popular atheist communities on the internet.

Lovely!

To all of us who love the work of The Thinking Atheist, this book, especially in it's Audio format, can be just like the never ending continuation of the podcast that we love so much...
Seth is as alive here as he always is, his personal journey and all of the seriousness along the way, together with the many of live's surprises were pleasure for me to get to know.

Interesting book but too self indulgent

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I am not the author so I would not have the effrontery to change it. This is an odd question.

What three words best describe Seth Andrews’s performance?

Curiously I think it would have been better read by a professional


Could you see Deconverted being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No


Any additional comments?

It had a lot of interesting material in it, and mounted some cogent arguments which effectively demolish religious concepts, but there was too much of himself in the book and there could have been much more of the interesting material that appears to undermine the arguments of those who argue for the existence of a deity.
