4.0 out of 5 stars Catchy title, not much unique for the intended audience, January 24, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Living Without God: New Directions for Atheists, Agnostics, Secularists, and the Undecided (Hardcover)
I only found a few sections that made me sit up and pay attention where the author seems to be truly focusing on issues specific to those that the title tries to attract.

The personal sections about his despair over Detroit and what he's trying to do to help the community seemed a bit too pretentious.

In that same vein, I found many sections that were so personal that they didn't generalize well for readers in other circumstances.

Overall, I nice presentation of humanist liberal attitudes about how one ought to live, but only tangentially relevant to those he targets with the title and sub-title.

Might be most helpful for a person who, until recently, was wholly entrenched in church life and is seeking a new direction.
