The Christian Delusion: Why Faith Fails Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This anthology of essays takes a close, unbiased look at the Christian faith and completely demolishes it. The essays cover every facet of the fundamentals of faith through the use of simple logical thought and analysis, thus exposing the relentless nincompoopery of the Christian world view. Editor Loftus (author of Why I Became an Atheist: A Former Preacher Reflects Christianity and contributors are themselves former Christians who fell from grace via logic and the quest for knowledge. This book is offered in good faith as an attempt to meet Christians half way and give them a chance to understand the atheist perspective.
