"The Loser Letters draws inevitable comparisons to C.S. Lewis' classic The Screwtape Letters, and rightly so.....a provocative, compelling case [made] with rare grace and conviction."
--Claire Gillen, The Washington Times
"The Loser Letters is an instant classic." --Nancy Piccione, The Catholic Post
"...[C.S.] Lewis now has a rival: The Loser Letters, by Mary Eberstadt.... this is witty and wicked satire." ---Scot McKnight, beliefnet.com
"[T]he engaging author....deftly channels C. S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters through the voice of a fictional twentysomething survivor of college hookups, detox, and Facebook relationship etiquette." --Joan Desmond, The Weekly Standard
"Eberstadt brilliantly defends the faith from radical New Atheism with wit and humor....more than a match for Hitchens and Dawkins and their flying spaghetti monster." --Matthew Archbold, National Catholic Register

For more serious considerations of a Theistic perspective on the New Atheists I would recommend Edward Feser's The Last Superstition or the Godless Delusion by Patrick Madrid and Kenneth Hensley. The former is rather heady, but the latter reads easily. Dinesh D'Souza's What's So Great About Christianity? would be of help as well to anybody wanting a theistic perspective in answer to New Atheistic assertions.
I would like to return this book--I couldnl't even finish it. It seems too surface, kind of a spin off of THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS, but with not nearly the quality or depth.
But, there are laugh-out-loud moments, and Eberstadt gets to the heart of some key dilemmas.
