The most hostile of these communications have come from Christians. This is ironic, as Christians generally imagine that no faith imparts the virtues of love and forgiveness more effectively than their own. The truth is that many who claim to be transformed by Christ's love are deeply, even murderously, intolerant of criticism. While we may want to ascribe this to human nature, it is clear that such hatred draws considerable support from the Bible. How do I know this? The most disturbed of my correspondents always cite chapter and verse.' So begins "Letter to a Christian Nation", Sam Harris' hard-hitting rebuttal of religious fundamentalism and blind belief. With deceptively simple arguments, he demolishes the myths on which Christianity was built, challenges believers to open their eyes to the contradictions of their faith and warns us of the dangers of America's ever increasing unification of Church and State.Hide synopsis

It is true as Sam Harris points out that evils have been done by individuals or groups in the name of religion. Where I think Mr. Harris is wrong is when he treats religius people as the sole source of whatever human evil visited upon the innocent. History is filled with genocides and mass murders ...
The book does not levy any significant arguments against the existence of God. He falls short of proving anything. But by doing all this he exposes the pitfalls of atheism by defining God as who they want him to be and by proving through history that God does not exist.
Sam Harris has done a fantastic job of condensing the main topics from his book, The End of Faith (Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason) into a small package that has the power to change people's views on religion in less than one-hundred pages. Readers who want to delve further into the topics ...
