Letter to a Christian Nation by Sam Harris

 Letters to a Christian Nation by Sam Harris

"Thousands of people have written to tell me that I am wrong not to believe in God. The most hostile of these communications have come from Christians. This is ironic, as Christians generally imagine that no faith imparts the virtues of love and forgiveness more effectively than their own. The truth is that many who claim to be transformed by Christ's love are deeply, even murderously, intolerant of criticism. While we may want to ascribe this to human nature, it is clear that such hatred draws considerable support from the Bible. How do I know this? The most disturbed of my correspondents always cite chapter and verse."

So begins Letter to a Christian Nation...

This is a really short book, but I found it to be quite interesting and really quick read.

Not sure how many people who actually read my blog would like it, but I'm glad I did and I must say I agree with a lot of what was written.


Anyways, not what I usually write a review on, but I knew it would be short, so a good way to get back in the swing of things.  At least I hope!
