Dan Barker's semi-autobiographical critique of religion came into my life years ago at the same time I began asking the hard questions about the nature of existence, the universe and everything. To say that Losing Faith in Faith influenced me would be an understatement—more accurately, it fueled the flame that steered me away from dogmatic belief once and for all. Barker's writing is clever, replete with humor and a pure joy to read for anyone wrestling with the illogicality of belief. He can no longer take religion seriously so you see that he's just laughing at the absurdity of it all. In the mid-2000's Losing Faith was updated for a newly-energized freethought market, and the result was 2008's Godless. The new edition is worth checking out since it goes into further detail on most of the subjects first printed here, but I still prefer this version.
