The End of Christianity
By

Rating
This title offers an intelligent, insightful, and provocative compilation of critical essays exploring Christianity. This successor volume to his critically acclaimed "The Christian Delusion", brings together a stellar group of respected scholars - including Victor Stenger, Robert Price, and David Eller - to continue the critique of Christianity. The first part considers the wildly improbable nature of basic Christian tenets; the lack of agreement among diverse Christian sects regarding the essential Christian message; and, a counter argument to the popular Christian claim that it was incredible that the Christian faith arose if it wasn't true in the first place. The second part analyzes the role of ancient Near Eastern myth in the creation of the Bible, while the third part critiques the Christian doctrines of the atonement, hell, and the resurrection. The final part considers the incompatibility of religion and science; reviews claims for intelligent design and life after death; and, advances the proposition that science can help discover morality.

About the Author

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.

Reviews

"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
