Dan's fascinating story of de-conversion also provides some basic philosophy and biblical examination. Great Read.

Just an amazing, entertaining, and very well informed book. I found it amazing hat Dan read the whole book himself it really makes it hit home a lot more. When I saw that Richard Dawkins did the foreword it was the last deciding factor in my decision to choose Godless, and it really did not disappoint.

The narration of the book was smooth. I think the book is special because it was written by a courageous author. Many in his former situation would quietly carry on, pretending that all was fine.

What did you like best about Godless? What did you like least?
Dan's fulsome account of his early experience which enables one to understand why he thinks they way he does.
Would you recommend Godless to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes, but not as a work of apologetics for atheism, more as a study in how fundamentalist thinking throws up poor rationality - whether it be arguing for faith or for atheism.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Richard Dawkins and Dan Barker ?
I just don't have time - there is so much more out there that merits my time and is more helpful by way of good and virtuous reasoning - ad hominem argumentation and a tone that sound like there's a 'smart-Alec' at the other end of the microphone just do nothing to advance knowledge (especially when it becomes apparent that it is not a 'smart-Alec' at the end of the microphone).
Do you think Godless needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No! It ended up in a cul-de-sac - you can only go round in circles for so long before you become sick.
Any additional comments?
I wonder if Dan chose to engage with more serious thinkers if he would find it so easy to construct his army of straw men?
The content is sound, technically well researched. Just found it very long-winded with unnecessary padding and repetition. The narrator spoke slowly and deliberately, tending to be boring.
what an amazing book. if you believe in a god, you definitely need to read this book. very well researched and delivered.
