Have you ever questioned the premise of your religious faith? Tommy Rodriguez certainly has. In fact, he is no stranger to questioning conventional wisdom. Having spent most of his adult life contemplating over such things, Rodriguez learned a thing or two about his religion that eventually sent him spiraling down a path of dissension and doubt. His first book entitled, "Diaries of Dissension," proposes the question ... is religion a legitimate source truth? Rodriguez embarks on a self-illuminating quest to answer this question, plus many more.
Years of scientific research have led Rodriguez to value the importance of skeptical inquiry. Written for the non-specialist, this book seeks to propagate a public understanding for science education. In doing so, Rodriguez pursues the ambitious task of taking on the tenets of religion in order to resolve humanity's most profound questions, while invoking a few surprising twists that Rodriguez foresees as an inescapable predicament to religious faith.

It is simple, Religion is one of the most controvosial topics that still exist to this day. As a believer myself, I know for certain nothing can shaken my faith.However with faith comes loyalty, but also with Faith must come education, and being open minded.Not everyone is easily convinced, and this book demonstrates just that. Diaries of Dissension breaks down many components, that can open your eyes to the holes even many reigions may have. However even I could appreciate it, because the authors point of view is supported by science.Which I think we all should have in our background. Some chapters go into great detail of how science can prove the bibles inaccuracies, however I do find it fascinating regardless what side you fall on to see both sides of the argument. well written, great examples, and the author is obviously an educated individual. Great Read.I would recommend for students studying religion especially so they can understand why some may not follow.
