This book from Vox Day was a joy to read. Heavy on the history, statistics, and humour. It was light on theology for a book that is not quite on the side of atheism, and I think that that will please most readers on both sides of the argument. The book was very clearly written. It was to the point and explicit. The reader will not have to spend time reconstructing arguments they think they might have a problem with- the arguments are given in a clear and logical form already. If you are interested in the existence of God (on either side, so to speak), then I reccomend you read this book.

A reviewer

Another author seeking to sell a few copies of a poorly written/poorly reasoned book to die hard Christians across the nation in search of a reassuring pat on the back and someone who will tell them that they're not crazy. Awful.

    A must buy for anyone interested in the debate.

    I think you can tell who falls into which camp by reading the reviews.

    But I consider myself a man of science (and a man of God) and Vox Day has put together a wonderful book full of well conducted research, and even, some science. In fact I believe its this book that singlehandedly dispelled the notion of the religion caused war. The atheist could deny that, but then he would be denying fact based science....talk about irony. I guess science isn't as important when it doesn't support your argument.

    To the book, its a very easy read as Vox has a knack for breaking down complex ideas. I find the humor rather funny, but then again i'm not at it's receiving end. Those complaining about his crass humor and giving it 1 star are right, he is very blunt and doesn't hesitate to talk down to his opponents. If you are an atheist its very off putting, but as a theist you want to give him a high five. Normally I would knock a star off for that, but atheists are notoriously pretentious, (a monopoly on science for example) so I find it adds to the humor even more.

    If you are a theist, just buy it. If you are an atheist, I would recommend it in order to develop a better defense against the more well read theists out there, at least you will know their arguments ahead of time.

    Easy five stars.
