Format: Paperback
In his book `Disproving Christianity', David McAfee systematically dismantles some of the basic tenets of the world's most popular brand of religion. In particular, he dissects various aspects affecting the very basis of Christianity directly from God's own book - the `holy' Bible. McAfee shows time and again, inconsistencies and discrepancies as well as many contradictions that are attributed to the Christian God; a character who is supposedly all knowing and essentially perfect - and infallible. The resulting conclusion that one is obliged to reach at the end of a journey through this succinct look at the many problems, is that either the Christian God is a complete liar at worst, entirely contradictory at best, or most likely that He is not actually real at all. The reader is really not left with any alternative conclusion - unless `faith' in the idea that God can somehow still recover from the onslaught renders the reader incapable of common sense and reason - attributes that would serve much better than faith when considering the numerous problems McAfee considers and exposes. Whilst the seasoned scholar may require more than is on offer, this book will more than suit most readers who are looking for a rounded and rational `easy to understand and appreciate' analysis of the reality behind Christianity.

Jim Whitefield, author of `The Mormon Delusion' series.

I really enjoyed this book (although a little short). I read it all during a train journey and did wish there was a bit more to it but I eagerly await David's next book on supernatural stuff. I enjoy David's writing style and like his Facebook page also. If y want to know more about the absurdity of Christianity then this book ticks a box.

Just finished this book which I would highly recommend as a great introduction to critical thinking

It's only short so it's not a particularly taxing read, but covers a number of very reasonable and well considered arguments as to why he feels the Bible is erroneous and could not be the infallible word of God.

It's also quite refreshing in that whilst it does take a very clear stance against Christianity (and other religions to a lesser extent) it doesn't have the vitriolic rant that other atheist texts have.
Just having a more "softly softly" approach means that Christians who assume that all atheists / skeptics are just like Chris Hitchens will be pleasantly surprised and might actually take on board more of the message being conveyed rather than just switching off in the belief that they're the subject of hatred and persecution

The focus is still very much on the Old Testament though and as far as I'm aware a lot of "modern" Christians don't necessarily still consider the laws in say Leviticus for instance to still be valid. All of the ones I know have cut their hair round their temples, some have tattoos and most are partial to a prawn curry, so it might not have the same impact as if the focus was on the NT alone

But its logical, well researched and "well mannered" discourse on the importance of reading fully the scriptures from your chosen faith, and applying critical thinking.

Look forward to reading other books by Mr McAfee

I have never been religious and I have been hesitant for long time to brand myself either an agnostic or an atheist. I have chosen the latter and I started researching more and more in order to educate myself better on the topic so I am am able to explain why I am an atheist and to fend off anyone trying to persuade me that I should believe in Christian God. After reading few books from Richard Dawkings and Christopher Hitchens, I came David David G. McAfee on Facebook when browsing atheism themed pages. It really appealed to me how David communicates and writes, so I ordered this book. It is very nicely written and easy to read and follow text which depicts the conflicts in Bible and analyzes facts which are not being talked about in churches (and I have been to a mass few times so I am entitled to judge this). The book is clear in the references to Bible and it actually made me research more and more.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for information about discrepancies and conflicts in Bible and Christianity itself.

The only downside is that it is quite thin and I only wish it was thicker with more text because the author is an amazing writer and captures your attention on every page.

A very good read. The author succinctly demonstrates what it means for something to be true and how any flaw in the bible must mean that the Bible cannot be historically accurate or the infallible word of an omnipotent and perfect creator.

No new ideas are presented per se, but it is a very good summation of existing arguments and very easy to read compared to other works.

It's not the most aesthetically presented work but a must read for people wanting an overview of the state-of-the-art concerning arguments against Christianity.
