Friendly Atheist’s Soul Bought By Friendly Christian On eBay

I just finished reading the book I Sold My Soul on eBay: Viewing Faith through an Atheist’s Eyes. It is about an atheist who said he would attend church as specified by the highest bidder on eBay. He provides insights on what goes on in churches from the perspective of an atheist raised in a Jain family, and thus with no Christian background to make many Christians’ various strange customs seem more familiar. This is definitely recommended reading for both Christians and Atheists. It is always encouraging to see that serious and respectful conversation is possible between friendly Atheists and friendly Christians, as do the author and the highest bidder (a pastor) in the book and on their web sites.

Another book I read recently is Where’s My Jetpack? A Guide to the Amazing Science Fiction Future That Never Arrived. It is about the inventions sci-fi promised us, some of which are possible now. Although I still want a ray-gun, they are still too big, so I’ll gladly settle for a Skycar.

  • Thanks for the heads-up on “I sold my soul” – I hadn’t heard of it!(In high school we had to take a comparitive religions course – this was a Catholic high school – and we *all* decided we wanted to be Jains. Not quite how they thought the course would work!)
