Would you consider the audio edition of Baptized Atheist to be better than the print version?
I have read a lot of books like this, as I have been on the same journey as the author, and gone through the same difficulties and challenges, and found the same light at the end of the tunnel, so reviewing it is somewhat biased as I found myself nodding and agreeing all the way.<br/><br/>It's an easy read, and delivered in a less aggressive and less frmal way that many others, and I enjoyed that. Sometimes these books are too apologetic (e.g. Why I believed) and sometimes to critical to put people off (e.g. God is Not Great or The God Delusion) and I found this had a good balance between both sides.<br/><br/>Thanks for writing this and getting it off your chest in a compelling and real way. <br/>

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This book is giving you a chance to view a journey of research and thought provoking questions on religion. This is great, because you won't have to take those years out of your life to get the same answers whether you agree or not with the outcomes. I liked it so much, I bought the paperback as well.
What did you like best about this story?
My favorite part was during a debate in a church and asked a the room full of people what can a god see? He then tells a story that will effect you in ways each person may experience differently. It has changed how I see the world. <br/><br/>Plus, there is one other part I have to mention. He discusses an analogy of religion that I have not heard of before, but is amazingly accurate. It is about a "Coin in the Field." That really hit home for me. Even my friends were impressed with this idea when we discussed it at a lunch today.
What about David C. Smalley???s performance did you like?
He is a sincere and caring person. You want to befriend him wether you agree with what he is saying or not. He speaks to everyone with great courteousness and respect. I found that it makes me want to treat people better if I am ever in these situations again.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
This is one journey, you won't have to take alone.
Any additional comments?
I don't usually get moved by a book in a way that makes me want to evaluate who I really am and make changes for the better right now. This one did that for me. I am grateful and I plan on living everyday of my life with more urgency and respect for others.
