“Valuable in the human story are the reflections of intelligent and ethical people who listen to the voice of reason and who allow it to vanquish bigotry and superstition. This book is a classic example.”
-CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS author of God is Not Great

“The most eloquent witness of internal delusion that I know-a triumphantly smiling refugee from the zany, surreal world of American fundamentalist Protestantism-is Dan Barker.”
-RICHARD DAWKINS author of The God Delusion

“Godless was a revelation to me. I don’t think anyone can match the (devastating!) clarity, intensity, and honesty which Dan Barker brings to the journey-faith to reason, childhood to growing up, fantasy to reality, intoxication to sobriety.”
-OLIVER SACKS authors of Musicophilia

In Godless, Barker recounts his journey from evangelical preacher to atheist activist, and along the way explains precisely why it is not only okay to be an atheist, it is something in which to be proud.”
-MICHAEL SHERMER publisher of Skeptic Magazine

“Godless is a fascinating memoir and a handbook for debunking theism. But most of all, it is a moving testimonial to one man’s emotional and intellectual rigor in acclaiming critical thinking.”
-ROBERT SAPOLSKY author of Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers

Very thoughtful

Any now atheists who comes from a heavily religious background will identify with Dan's questioning and the difficulty in "coming out" as non-religious. Dan is very thoughtful and the book was a great read.

Abit heavy and turgid in parts and a bit dated perhaps but well worth reading!

A true tour de force from his feverish proselytising to conversion to atheism. Impressive and thorough tackling of ontological, religious, psychological and literature issues e.g. the various contradictions in the Bible and how they originated from deliberate, or not, mistranslations from Aramaic. A holistic approach to atheism.
