End of Faith - Sam Harris,
This review is from: The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason (Hardcover)
So you are thinking of buying this book! Well I totally recommend the read. For someone who is not particularly intellectual (me!), I was a little daunted by all the 'big words' and although it took me a couple of weeks to read and digest I found it inspiring, interesting, thought provoking. It has got me thinking and that, I think, is the main point of Sam's work. to get us to think and to question 'Why?' and look for truth. I grew up as an Evangelical, happy clappy Christian (Was told that Evolution was wrong and that Creationism was correct) and have since converted to Judaism. I have always been on a quest for the truth and Science delivers so many answers that the Rabbi's fail to fully answer. Now?- well, I have 'lost' my faith - but in a good way. I don't feel depressed about it anymore and and am excited about life and learning more about life and what it is all about. Next book - Evolution for Dummies!
