He explains some of the fallacious thinking exhibited by Christians as well as some of the discrepancies or contradictions in the bible, and as a result, comes to the conclusion that both reason and faith in the Christian god cannot be reconciled. This a truly inspirational book for someone trying to free themselves from the shackles of religion.

February Book Review: DEconverted: a journey from religion to reason by Seth Andrews |

His straightforward, humorous manner and radio-quality voice only improve the book. Basically what I’m saying is, the book is too short and seemed as if it was missing out on some extra depth.


I do not bother to cover my true colors in Norway, there’s no point, I harm no one. I am astonished at what Seth accomplished.

But when it comes to the single biggest question in the book- why does God allow bad things to happen-the answer is simple. He’s mentioned in the past that his book would delve more into his days in Christian radio and such, and I wasn’t disappointed.

With Seth being from Oklahoma, coming out joureny an atheist is quite a big deal there. All of these were the little things that planted the seeds of doubt and re,igion Andrews to seriously consider the role religion played in his life and in society as a whole.

Seth opened up a new world for me. Skepticism about Religion — Part 5: I’d kourney a latent, non-participating Christian for years. A Journey from Religion to Reason is a deeconverted semi-autobiography by Seth Andrews told with passion and pathos of his life-changing move from theism to religon.

Will be recommending this to many as a way to explain to them my own ‘journey’. Live life with a sense of joy and wonder.
