John W. Loftus earned degrees in theology and philosophy from Lincoln Christian Seminary. He then attended Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and received a degree in philosophy of religion. Before leaving the church, he had ministries in Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana, and taught at several Christian and secular colleges. He is the author of Why I Became an Atheist, and the editor of The Christian Delusion.
"Loftus's book is admirable for its bluntness and single-minded drive toward the belief that science-itself a human construct and thus as subject to flaws as religion-is mankind's saving grace...Provocative" -Kirkus Reviews "John Loftus and his distinguished colleagues have hit another home run. This book should win the game: Christianity, it's strike three and you are out!" -Dan Barker, copresident, Freedom from Religion Foundation; author of Godless: How an Evangelical Preacher Became One of America's Leading Atheists
