Atheists have turned a corner in public visibility in recent years, but they nevertheless remain one of America's most misunderstood and mistrusted groups of people. Atheist Voices of Minnesota attempts to break this ignorance by letting thirty-six atheists openly share their personal, unique stories. The results are touching, fascinating, and diverse. This collection of autobiographical stories is an excellent introduction to atheism, and will inspire other atheists to come out to their family and friends. With a foreword by Greta Christina. All net proceeds go to Minnesota Atheists (a 501c3 nonprofit organization) with authors, editors, designers, and other volunteers receiving no financial benefit.

What People are Saying About This

Dale McGowan

Atheist Voices of Minnesota is a chorus not of arguments and positions but of shared human lives. And what a chorus! At turns smart, funny, and deeply touching, this collection combines the plainspoken humanity of the northern heartland with the depth and intelligence of the honestly examined life. Any atheist in any corner of the world is sure to find a reflection of his or her own journey in these pages, while the religious believer can learn how very much we all have in common after all. —Dale McGowan, author and editor of Parenting Beyond Belief and Raising Freethinkers

Rev. Dr. Kendyl Gibbons

This collection of very personal stories beautifully illustrates the variety of ideas and feelings that characterize atheism. Some are narratives of struggle and the triumph of reason and freedom; others relate with gentle amusement or joyful confidence vignettes from the ordinary lives of non-believers. To listen to these “Voices” is to be aware that atheists are regular human beings, managing the same delights and demands that all of us face in this world. Their thoughtful perspectives will be illuminating to people of any faith, or none. —Rev. Dr. Kendyl Gibbons, senior minister of the First Unitarian Society
