Letter to a Christian Nation
From the new afterword by the author:Humanity has had a long fascination with blood sacrifice. In fact, it has been by no means uncommon for a child to be born into this world only to be patiently and lovingly reared by religious maniacs, who believe that the best way to keep the sun on its course or to ensure a rich harvest is to lead him by tender hand into a field or to a mountaintop and bury, butcher, or burn him alive as offering to an invisible God. The notion that Jesus Christ died for our sins and that his death constitutes a successful propitiation of a “loving” God is a direct and undisguised inheritance of the superstitious bloodletting that has plagued bewildered people throughout history. . .

Review: Letter to a Christian NationUser Review - Brian Mikołajczyk - Goodreads
A great, short book on the religious problems facing America today. That is, the progress that is being stymied by dogmatic ideology that has no place in the 21st century. I would highly recommend this book to all Americans, but in particular Christian-Americans. Read full review
Review: Letter to a Christian NationUser Review - Jeremy - Goodreads
Know any Christians who think that the USA isn't, and never was, a Christian nation? Sam Harris thinks they're dumb. Check out Doug Wilson's Letter from a Christian Citizen, a response to Harris's book. Read this in one sitting in Barnes & Noble, probably around 2007. Read full review
