Adventures from reading books captured within short reviews.

Letter to a Christian Nation - Sam Harris, Jordan Bridges The main thing I remember from this book is the author's criticism of moderate and liberal Christians for providing cover for the religious extremest. The truth of this charge does cause me to reflect a bit since I consider myself to be a liberal Christian. However, I conjecture that removal of the moderate option would result in the unintended consequence in increasing the number of religious extremest. The more moderate religious groups can provide a refuge for the extremest who grow weary of their positions. I elaborate more on my beliefs in my review of Dawkin's The God Delusion.
