Skeptical Readers - Bookclub

Let's read a book and have a discussion!

This month's book is Hope After Faith by Jerry DeWitt.

(On December 19th we can meet Jerry and talk to him about the book!)

About
A former Louisiana pastor’s courageous memoir chronicling his conversion to atheism

Atheism’s leading lights have long been intellectuals raised in the secular and academic worlds: Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and the late Christopher Hitchens.

By contrast, Jerry DeWitt was born and bred into the church and was in fact a Pentecostal preacher before arriving at atheism through an extraordinary dialogue with faith that spanned more than a quarter of a century.

Hope After Faith is his account of that journey.

    Is it OK to attend even if I have not had the opportunity to read the book?

      Yes...Please note that the Author is speaking locally on the 19th. It is a great opportunity....hopefully­ everyone who comes to talk about the book will also attend.

      I would add though - discussion about the book does work better when everyone has read it. :)
