Format: Hardcover
This is the most powerfully persuasive and concise book I have yet read on this subject and I have read many others,including Darwin, Dawkins, Dennett and many others.
In my opinion it is unbeatable and should be compulsory reading in all secondary schools.
For a man who was brought up as a regular practising Christian, in the USA, (a land where Christian fundamentalism and fanaticism is just as rife and dangerous,as in countries where Islam follows a similar trend), he presents a totally unbiased and impartial, strictly evidence based, critical appraisal of the Judaeo-christian scriptures.
He accepts only that evidence which is provable and rejects "faith statements" based on the fallacies of "believing what it says in the scriptures solely because it is allegedly the word of God". If you read the bible (old & new testaments) you owe it to yourself to read the arguments that oppose them, before making up your own mind.
Like the author, I too grew up in a Christian household and was indoctrinated for the first 30 years of my life. I regret that I never thought to question it, until my 62nd year and feel I have been living a delusion for the past 32 years. So I feel a little embittered, that I was misled for so long. Thanks Jason. Retired professional SW England, UK.

I have read many books which expose the fallacy of religion from every angle (cult tactics; science; history; DNA; maths; etc). This book is extremely well written and he covers just the right topics in the right sequence/process to educate the reader from the basics as to HOW people get seduced by the lies of the clergy; how the clergy retain control over the minds of devotees (great explanation of cognitive dissonance) and great overview of logical fallacies as used by defenders of faith. Then he analyses the content of the Bible - the bizarre stories and doctrines. KABOOM ! he explodes the myths and exposes the patent folly and nonsense of the Bible.
I so wish i read this book as a teenager - i could have saved so many man-hours, money and headspace by knowing that the Bible is such illogical, implausible, impossible, anti-science, nonsensical trash which portrays a deity which is worse than the worst dictator and mass murderer.
GREAT BOOK - i strongly recommend this book to friends and especially to the slaves of religion who need help and liberation.
Friends don't let friends suffer from delusions/false beliefs.

There are (and I am guessing) probably millions of perfectly intelligent humans in particular parts of the world who truly believe in a wise and benevolent figure that they have never seen or never met (a wisened older male, often depicted in popular culture with white hair and a big white beard) that, at the most basic level, miraculously hears and sees everything they do and subsequently rewards the good and faithful but severely punishes the bad and the unbelievers in HIM. To many other people around the world this figure is simply a fabrication of man, conjured up in the past to control the behaviour of the masses, who put their blind belief in him in order to be personally rewarded by him for being good people. Belief in this specific figure is largely dependent upon where you are born, so if you are born in Surrey he is very, very real to you, but if you are born in say China, he isn't real at all (and you may faithfully believe in a similar figure passed down through the generations). Every December 25th the faithful believers celebrate his joyous coming and give praise for his generosity and love, often with the exchange of small folded pieces of cardboard bearing his image.

To not believe in this God like Santa Clause figure (that's Santa, not Satan) or to not be good, will, according to most parents, lead to Santa becoming wrathful and ultimately to no presents being left at Christmas time. For the believing kids that would be a very bad, and a very real, thing. Hellish, in fact. So they all accept what their parents have told them and blindly believe in Santa. Sound familiar?

Format: Paperback
This is a good, thorough introduction to the various problems that exist in the Bible - for the most part, an enumeration of how the God of the Old Testament is morally deplorable, and how the morals of the OT are not acceptable in our modern age. There is also a section on overt contradictions. The section on the New Testament is briefer, mostly focusing on the question of Jesus' existence and divinity, and whether he offered good morals. A worthwhile read for anyone who doesn't want too much technicality and wants to get to the point without too much rhetoric. If you're in doubt about Christianity - either an agnostic or a doubting Christian, you should probably give this a look, so that you can see that even without Dawkins' arguments from Evolution and Consequentialism, in its _own_ terms, the Bible is self-contradictory and offensive, if you bother to read it.

In recent months I have completely lost my faith
I began researching loss of faith and found many helpful books and internet articles
It came as a surprise to discover that there are clergy some still serving who no longer believe
This book explains many conflicting statements in the bible and explains how we are conditioned to believing in a supernatural human being
