Faitheist : How an Atheist Found Common Ground with the Religious
The story of a former Evangelical Christian turned openly gay atheist who now works to bridge the divide between atheists and the religious The stunning popularity of the New Atheist movement whose most famous spokesmen include Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and the late Christopher Hitchens speaks to both the growing ranks of atheists and the widespread, vehement disdain for religion among many of them. InFaitheist, Chris Stedman tells his own story to challenge the orthodoxies of this movement and make a passionate argument that atheists should engage religious diversity respectfully. nbsp; Becoming aware of injustice, and craving community, Stedman became a born-again Christian in late childhood. The idea of a community bound by God's love a love that was undeserved, unending, and guaranteed captivated him. It was, he writes, a place to belong and a framework for making sense of suffering. nbsp; But Stedman's religious community did not embody this idea of God's love: they were staunchly homophobic at a time when he was slowly coming to realize that he was gay.
