Sam Harris responds to his critics in “Letter to a Christian Nation“. The book is written as a letter to a Christian, but could apply to any religion. At at little over 90 pages, it is readable in a single day. From the keeping of slaves to stoning a woman to death on her father’s doorstep on her wedding night if she isn’t a virgin, Harris looks deep into the “morality” of religion with a skeptical mind. He finds that the bible (and other religious works) is full of self contradiction and questions whether an omniscient, omnipotent being could have contributed to the writing in any manner.
Harris turns 90 pages into a religious smackdown of biblical proportions. Anyone who has questions of their own religiousness should read this. Anyone who has complete faith in their own religiousness should too, but they won’t. There are just too many questions raised that cannot be answered properly by a zealot no matter the level of zealotry.
