Editorial Reviews

Review

"I'm indeed pleased that Jeffrey Mark and I agree so closely on the riveting issues he courageously dissects in this splendid book, because his impeccable logic is, in my view, irrefutable. This book is a delight to read -- both in terms of Jeff's obvious talents as a writer, and in his smooth organization of complex material which, in lesser hands, would not have been so systemically argued and easy to understand. This unique and outstanding book is destined to become iconic in the freethought community." -- David Mills, Author of "Atheist Universe"

From the Publisher

This is a book for atheists and Christians alike.

In this book Jeffrey Mark meticulously breaks down Christianity and debunks it, showing in detail why it's a complete fraud, offering help for atheists in dealing with Christians, and while offering help and guidance for people who are struggling, trying to break free from their religion. It's not easy letting go of something that was so ingrained in our heads for so long, especially when there's a fear factor (the threat of Hell) involved. People need help letting go. It's not easy, and it's scary. This book can help.

This book is a challenge for Christians to read. Having one's philosophies turned upside down can only help reinforce one's faith... or cause them to lose it altogether. A strong Christian will certainly want to read this book as a challenge to his or her faith and see if it helps them grow or let go altogether.

When I first started reading this book I was expecting a personal narrative of internal struggle and inquiry, and it is. However I was not expecting the extensive amount of research Marks undertook in his journey.

It is easy to read yet avoids dumbing-down the material. Mark's doesn't just stick to the basic questions but covers everything from science and logic to biblical facts. It's not just about facts though - the personal account takes the reader through his thought process and while stimulating the reader to question preconceived notions and society. This book will make you think. His personal story is sincere, humbling, and occasionally humorous. I wouldn't recommend this book just for Christians though. It's also a must-read for many atheists still dealing grappling with feelings of shame and guilt remaining from childhood indoctrination.

When I first picked up "Christian No More: a Personal Journey of Leaving Christianity" and glanced at the description on the back cover I was not impressed. My immediate thought was, "Ho-hum, another emotion-filled personal 'testimony' of someone's break from traditional Christianity."

Don't misunderstand me. I don't mean to belittle or ridicule the often painful, physiological struggle associated with the break from engrained religious beliefs; I have my own personal story. Those stories provide great therapeutic value for the doubter by assuring him that he is not alone, and they create a bridge from religious faith based thinking, to the rationalization of the freethinker.

My first impression of Jeffrey Mark's book was wrong. Yes, it is the story of his journey to freedom. It does reveal his emotional suffering and confusion. It tells of the anger, resentment and depression he felt upon realizing how he had been deceived. And it tells how he overcame those emotions and turned a seeming tragedy into triumph. But it goes beyond the personal tale by revealing how he turned to logic and reason to negate the misinformation he had been taught from childhood.

Making an intellectual decision doesn't necessarily dispel an emotional belief. Such was the case with Jeffrey Mark. To reach that point where he could believe what his intellect revealed he turned to science, history, archeology, mythology, and simple reasoning. His insight and logic, in many cases, are unique and enlightening in their simplicity; and his knowledge of the Bible and the sciences, especially evolution and physics, are impressive. The argument he makes against religions, using these studies, is the great gift that "Christian No More" offers it reader.

When you are a Christian, you will feel like a "true" Christian and that others just aren't getting it right. When you really start to study the bible many questions will arise. There will be contradictions and improbable stories in the bible. The bible is supposedly the infallible word of god, right?

Sometimes the most obvious answer is hard to see. What if the bible is not infallible?

This may be obvious to some who were not brought up as a Christian, but for a large percentage of people brought up in religion it is hard to accept this possibility as fact.

In Jeffrey Mark's book Christian No More, he talks about his own personal journey from Christianity to clarity, discovering facts that led him to the most intellectually honest conclusion.

I recommend this book to Christians who question, and those who can't imagine how we possibly can.

Jeffrey Mark, like many Americans, was born into a Christian family. He grew up attending church regularly, saying prayers, and believing all the biblical stories he learned about. Eventually he had doubts about some of the church's beliefs, and this sent him on a remarkably thorough search for answers.

Because of his background, Mark is uniquely qualified to write a book such as this. It is easy for someone who was never a strong believer to question religion without doubt or fear. This is not the case for someone who was brought up believing in God, Jesus, and the stories in the Bible. Because of this, you won't detect a sarcastic or belittling tone in this book. Mark understands why people have the religious beliefs they do, and he lays out many compelling arguments against these beliefs.

For a nonbeliever, some of these arguments may be familiar. You have probably had some of these same thoughts. In Mark's book however, these arguments are articulated in a way that only a skilled writer can. There are also plenty of internet links and books mentioned for those who would like more evidence or details. Many of Mark's arguments will surely be ones that you hadn't considered. It is obvious that he spent a lot of time researching the topics covered in the book (and there are many). He lays out numerous arguments that I have never considered, and I've been thinking about these topics for many years.

If a book may be judged by how many pages have been dog-eared, marked with a highlighter, or indexed with a sticky note, then this book is excellent. Lots and lots of great information in this well-written book. I highly recommend it for believers and nonbelievers alike.
