I went to the library for the first time in a long time this weekend. While there I found the “required atheist reading” and decided to pick it up. I haven’t read a book for pleasure since probably high school. I’ve been in and out of college for the last few years so it’s not like I haven’t read, just not for leisure.
I picked up the book and it was a bit daunting. It’s really big. Like way bigger than anything I’ve read in a long time. But I was up for the challenge. I’m currently on Chapter 3 and I find myself having a hard time putting it down. I don’t read at an amazing speed but I’m doing about 40 pages a night. It’s been amazing.
I plan to do a full review once I finish the book but I very much appreciate how it is laid out so far. Definitions followed by what he is defining as the hypothesis, the arguments for (which I’ve come across previously in my own research, mainly thanks to The Atheist Experience).
I think I did start reading this once as a believer, I wonder if it would have changed my point of view then had I finished it…
