Book Review: Godless, by Dan Barker

Godless: How an Evangelical Preacher Became One of America's Leading AtheistsIn Godless, Dan Barker explains how he went from being an Evangelical preacher to being an atheist. This is both a memoir and an explanation of his reasoning. He explains how he went from being a preacher to becoming an atheist and describes the attitudes and reactions of some of his former friends and colleagues to his change of heart. (He expresses a great deal of exasperation for those who choose to decide that his loss of faith is the result of some moral lapse. From observation, I have noticed the assumption the religious have concerning atheists and agnostics is that they are ethically and morally inferior. The mirror here is that the ethical and moral atheist or agnostic often feels that the religious are the ones failing in ethics and morality.)
