I'm working on a detailed book review at my Cross Examined blog (at Patheos), but let me summarize. Ray correctly cites surveys showing that Americans rank atheists below adulterers for consideration for president. But then he cites more analysis that argues that it's simple Christian bigotry that does it. I'll let you decide whether Christians' aversion to atheists is well grounded or not, but Ray's book seems to undercut his own argument. He does later claim (without evidence) that someone who doesn't believe in God has no grounding for their morality, but he ignores the obvious follow-on questions. What about other civilizations that are not predominantly Christian? Do those people and politicians have no morals? What about the world's first civilizations in Mesopotamia, Egypt, and the Indus river region that preceded Christian Europe by millennia--did their lack of Christianity hinder their progress or morality?
A few highlights: Ray lists 60 atheist lawsuits as if to show how mean atheists are, but they all looked like appropriate corrections to Christian excesses. He complains about insults he's gotten but then loads his book with plenty of insults to atheists. He gives his world-famous 10 Commandments challenge (doesn't apply to me) and argues that, because a book couldn't happen by chance, neither could DNA (biologists don't say it did, Ray--do some reading).
The book summary above says that this is supposed to be used to convince atheists of the truth of the Christian position. It's gloating about Christian privilege, insults on atheists, and childish scientific errors makes it fail miserably.
