Brian Baker was born in England and during the 1960s he owned and operated a successful chain of Record Stores. In 1972 the family moved to New Zealand where they ran a Christian Youth Club on their beautiful ocean front property. Brian and his wife also began working with a local Christian Pastor and assisted him in the work of the ministry. In 1978 Brian again moved his family, this time to USA where he and his wife and eldest son attended Rhema Bible Training Centre in Tulsa Oklahoma. After graduation in 1979 the family finally moved to Perth Western Australia where they founded a new church. From small beginnings their ministry grew during the following years to become one of the largest church congregations in Australia with an attendance of over 2500. Brian travelled overseas to many counties and across Australia speaking at large and small churches.
In 1989 Brian and his wife resigned as Pastors from the ministry when their marriage finally failed. Brian handed the church and ministry over to his eldest son, then, aged 29. The following years were difficult and extremely challenging for Brian as he adjusted to life after the ministry. It was also during these years that he was able to seriously question and investigate the evidence to support his beliefs. Over a period of time he finally came to the conclusion that he could no longer believe in the existence of God or the validity of the Bible. Brian emerged from this experience finally as a realist, rationalist, skeptic and atheist.
Brian is now retired and spends most of his time writing. His first book - 'From Faith to Reason' first published in 2009 has now been up-dated and re-edited and was published in September 2011. His second book - 'Rest in Peace & LIVE! - Personal Peace without God' was published in March 2012. Brian's latest book is - Nonsense From The Bible - published in August 2012. All his books are available in both eBook/Kindle formant and Paperback.
