"Deconverted: A Journey from Religion to Reason" is a well written autobiography told with humour and heart by an "average" person. It is the story lived by many thousands of people in America and around the World, every day. This story could very well be your story of doubt and loss of religious faith.
I think this book will be an insightful read for both the non-believer and the faithful. Those doubting their religious faith and the irrational religious dogma, will find solace in knowing that it is indeed ok to question one's religious faith and what you have been instructed to think by your Parents, Pastors and Priests.
The Faithful will gain an understanding in simple terms, as to why their loved ones and friends can and do quit their faith and turn away from religious dogma.
The reader will receive a first hand account of the experience of someone, who was raised in a very Christian home by loving, devout Christian parents in a majority Christian community, in the belt buckle of the Bible belt of Mid Western America and who, as an adult began to question his religious faith.
The Believer who has doubts, will be able to relate to Seth and his story on a personal level. Seth had those same doubts about his faith, as you do and began to ask the difficult questions, started thinking for himself and finally followed where logic, common sense and reality, not faith, indoctrination and traditional ancient dogma, lead him.. To Reason!
I highly recommend this book :)
"Deconverted" is a great read, not very long, yet very powerful. It's not just an atheist story, but a human one. It does more than take us one on man's journey through emotional ups and downs; it makes us think.
Well written with short chapters, this book tells of his upbringing in a Christian household, his work in contemporary christian radio to where he is now. He discusses some of the points of Christianity and religion in general he now questions or finds absurd, but does so not to confront, but merely to tell a story of where he was an where he is now.
An excellent book. For those of you who are non-believers, it's a great read, and for those who have started to come out of the slumber, and rising to fully opening your eyes this book will be a great way to approach your questions and fears.
I highly recommend this book to anyone. But if you enjoy Dawkins, Dennett, Harris, and Hitch, you will love it. Seth Andrews adds a welcome new voice to the freethinking literary genre.
