This is not Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris, or anything close to it,
This review is from: Faith, Interrupted: A Spiritual Journey (Vintage) (Paperback)
Unless you personally know Eric Lax, his preacher father, Eric's friend Skip Packard or have memories involving Camp Stevens or remember your own personal struggles getting out of the Vietnam War, just skip to about page 190 of this 270 page book. There you will find more of the beginnings of a discussion about a person actually having their faith interrupted and the thought processes that helped them break out of the religious trance they had been steeped in from birth.
Page 250 has a nice listing of the reasons that he stands behind his dismissal of Christianity but waiting until page 250? Really? This book is 85% personal memoir and 15% discussion of why a person might reject Christianity. If you are looking for any Harris or Dawkins type of discussion, or an explanation of how a person who has fallen off the bandwagon now leads their life, you really won't find it here.
This guy has fallen off the bandwagon and sounds like he wishes he could get back on.
