If salvation is the cure, atheism is the prevention.
Dan Barker's recent book Godless contains Barker's personal perspective on the issues between atheism and Christianity. The entire book is not a personal account per se, as his deconversion story only assumes the first 80 pages or so. While I read the entire book in about an afternoon (it is fairly short and easy to read) there were a few sections I read and re-read; In fact, I was so surprised at some of the things he wrote that I had to write down the page number and return later.
Now, I'm going to try and be as fair as I can in this review. I've gone through a few iterations of this book review and decided that too much of this book is too subjective to critically examine (I sincerely hope that you read this book for yourself) in entirety, so I'm restricting myself to one chapter: Cosmological Kalamity.
