Publisher's Summary

In Atheism Kills, Barak Lurie exposes the horrors of a world without God. Contrary to the mantra we've heard time and time again that religion is responsible for more deaths than anything else, it is in fact the absence of God which has killed - in obscene numbers.
Ever since atheism first assumed government control in the French Revolution, it has done nothing but kill. Atheism has killed through its many deputies: progressivism, eugenics, fascism, and communism. Lurie shows that it was the godlessness in each of these ideologies that killed hundreds of millions. But atheism doesn't just kill lives. It kills purpose, free will, beauty, compassion, a sense of the past and future, creativity, and freedom itself. Atheism offers only the horrors of chaos and totalitarianism.
The world misplaces its focus on Radical Islam as the greatest threat to civilization. As horrible as it is, it is doing nothing and having no sense of self which are the true enemies. It was our will to fight and sense of mission that overcame fascism and communism. We must have these to keep Radical Islam at bay, too.
This is why we must resist the growth of atheism. It was God that gave us our freedom. It was God who gave our sense of purpose that created civilization. Take those away, and there is nothing to fight for. In this way, Lurie shows that the lack of belief in God is our greatest danger. How does he know? Because like there will always be fires, there will always be enemies that seek to destroy our civilization. But if we don't have fire stations with crew, and protocol in each city to deal with fires, those fires will consume us. Likewise, how we prepare ourselves to deal with horrific ideologies will be what saves us. That preparation can only come with our embrace of the centrality of God.

I enjoyed listing to this book

Easy to kill people when you dehumanized them and it's easy to do that when you are an atheist

Fascinating, Brilliant and Uplifting

A wonderful book, I enjoyed every minute and each chapter became my favorite. Before I started reading it, I thought I would like the book because I already agreed with its premise, but I didn’t realize I would learn so much and be so entertained and enlightened. It’s packed full of stories and facts with humor and pop culture sprinkled throughout. The message is important and relevant and is inspiring and hopeful. I liked listening to the audible version because I got to hear how the author wanted to express it. It was clear, pleasant and easy to understand and my long commute zipped by.

Powerful expression of atheism on a national level

An excellent rebuttal to the works of so called New Atheists. A valuable, enjoyable listen for the religious and the atheist alike, and what seems to me the latest (but by no means the final) in a long running dialogue between the two.
