Losing Faith in Faith records Dan Barker's dramatic journey from devout soul-winner to one of America's most prominent freethinkers.Following his "calling" at age 15, Dan Barker worked as a missionary, ordained minister, associate pastor, touring evangelist, Christian songwriter, performer and record producer. After preaching for 19 years, Barker "lost faith in faith." Throwing out the bath water, he discovered: "There is no baby there!"Today Barker, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Inc., (www.ffrf.org) frequently represents freethought on the talkshow circuit and at personal appearances, concerts, and debates around the country, turning his experience as a former minister into ammunition against superstition and irrationality.In Losing Faith in Faith, Barker explains why he left the ministry. He also offers a definitive, compelling analysis of why he rejects belief in a god and the claims of religion. He explores the fallacies, inconsistencies, and harm of Christian doctrine and theistic dogma. In its place, he issues an appealing and compassionate invocation of freethought, reason, and humanism.Losing Faith in Faith is both a challenge to believers and an arsenal for skeptics.… (mais)

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. ( )

This book by an ex-evangelical preacher is a detail of his journey from faith to non-belief. In a sense, you could consider it his "confession', as he discusses how he converted others to the faith, and participated in anti-evolution sermons. He also contributed music and plays to the vast corpus of Christian literature, from which he still draws royalties. The author writes in a very down-to-earth, approachable style, more friend than professor. ( )

This is a good book, full of data, examples, and ideas, even if I don't like the "preacher" style of Dan. He always talks like he has the only goal of converting you, no matter what. I would prefer a more soft and less confrontational approach.
Maybe this is what religious people need in order to reconsider their faith and believes. ( )

Great compendium on rejecting fundamentalist religion from somebody who has lived through it. Authentic. ( )
