Letter to a Christian Nation
Letter to a Christian Nation | Sam Harris
10 posts | 27 read | 10 to read
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. . . From the Trade Paperback edition.

June reading wrap-up. Harris and Hitchens were my favs. Hitchens‘ book was a sad read, he wrote right up to his death and his wife wrote a touching epilogue. #junewrapup

I absolutely loved this book! Harris crams so much secular goodness in to 114 pages. While I have read many books which debunked what I learned during my seven years of Catholic school, this one did so more succinctly than any other and is probably more accessible to believers as is a very quick read and less intimidating than one of Dawkins' great, but chunkier books. Harris' arguments are presented in rapid-fire succession and most hit the mark.

keithmalek One of my favorites! 7mo

This succinct book is hitting on all cylinders for me. Harris makes his point and moves on. 📖

Eleven years later experts and intellectuals are ignored by ignorant politicians on a whole gamut of subjects. Sad.
