Al Kunz - At first glance the title of The Atheist's Prayer might repel the more religious while attracting non-believers. That initial impression is not only too simplistic an interpretation of the title (why would an atheist be praying?), but also assuming way too much. That isn't to say that belief in a deity or the lack of such belief doesn't figure into the story. The characters in the book run the gamut of beliefs with my favorite, seven-year-old Kevin, trying to make sense of it all. All the major characters are multi-dimensional and, like real people, refuse to conform to stereotype. Those that, at first blush, seem to have little going for them, confound that impression in the end, while those that seem to be among the best of people, show that appearances can be deceiving. In the end, they're all human, with flaws and good qualities that aren't immediately apparent. No matter where you stand personally, if you approach The Atheist's Prayer with an open mind, it will help illustrate the potential, both good and bad, in all people, regardless of which deity (if any) they choose to believe in.
