I will admit, out of the three books this was the one I was most looking forward to reading. I am curious and read a wide variety of books, many covering evolution and other “heretical” ideas. There are some interesting observations to be made from these three books.

Wit I always enjoyed Seth’s atheist show, so hearing that he was releasing a book I was interested. Oct 27, Gerhard Nell rated it it was amazing. So although I do not proclaim my disbelief openly around family, I don’t truly hide either. I purchased this book directly from the author this past weekend at a conference he was speaking at, and found in our conversation that Seth is deconvertdd friendly, open, and passionate about his endeavors and the atheist recovering from religion community that he is in.
Her reliyion is to inspire and facilitate holistic transformation in people for a kinder, healthier planet. Uourney Logic of Miracles — Part 2: View all 3 comments. I do not often give books 5 stars but this book is exceptional. Having personally seen the sex and drugs in the gospel mus Seth Andrews has written a refreshing and delightful account of his deconversion experience. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and definitely have the same sentiments.
An example of this is that I read Seth’s grandfathers ‘swear’ “feathers” as “Fffffeatherrrssss” which is how Seth says it when it is mentioned during the podcast.
Jan 02, Jenny Hayworth rated it it was amazing. As an ex JW I loved reading this book as the reasoning often followed my own journey and I could self relate. It also would have been a good choice to include perhaps another chapter on things he’s learned from being a non-believer, since a lot of this focuses on how he came to disbelief, and although that is the point religio the journey is, of course, never over I felt as though it would have been more conclusive And a tip of the hat to fans to write some personal revelations that have come out of having, and sharing, a community.
This is not a bad thing as it introduces hard topics religoon a level most people can ‘handle’, but this isn’t a book intended for philosophical discussions. Seth is a positive person with a great sense of humor and is an excellent communicator and story teller.
Having personally seen the sex and drugs in the gospel music world, I was sure it existed in other areas of religious music as well. In an ocean of religious confusion, help us maintain a drop of sanity! They’d think me bound for eternal flames after all.

A well written personal story of moving from being a member in a culture where the answers to all the questions were given to you within the comfortable yo of faith to the more uncertain bigger world where the answers are not so readily available and must be earned through critical thinking.
If you listen to Seth Andrews’ The Thinking Atheist podcast, you’ve already heard most of what’s in this book. The info in this book doesn’t seem to go beyond what a Bio Blurb might say on his website or any other ‘About’ tab. He’s mentioned in the past that his book would delve more into his days in Christian radio and such, and I wasn’t disappointed.
I’m not denying that his personal realizations aren’t religiob and extremely courageous– many kudos to him for being so honest and creating a forum for non-believers to feel less alienated. I have yet to meet anyone who moved from theism to agnosticism to atheism who did not go through a multitude of sometimes agonizing thoughts and emotions, because it is not a case of simply flipping a switch but, as Andrews says in the title, is a journey.
