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. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

In this anthology of recent criticisms aimed at the reasonableness of Christian belief, Loftus has assembled fifteen outstanding articles by leading skeptics, expanding on themes introduced in his first critically acclaimed book, "Why I Became an Atheist."

This is a great collection of essays regarding Christianity. Some of the essays I found a bit tough to get through, not because they were over my head, but they felt a little dry. Most of them were great though.
