As you may know, my new non-fiction publication The Swedish Fish, Deflating the Scuba Diver and Working the Rabbit's Foot is out now!
From the publishers description:
Ever wonder if there was compelling proof for the existence of God? If so, what would it look like and how would it be presented? Do you believe Christianity is true or do you take the skeptical view that all religions are man-made? What does human consciousness have to do with God? What's the difference between agnosticism and atheism? How does culture and how we are raised impact our religious and spiritual beliefs?
Skeptic and best selling author Tristan Vick covers a full range of subjects, from philosophy to psychology to sociology, history, and science as he consider's the the arguments for the existence of God, belief in the historical Jesus, and whether or not things like the soul, and heaven and hell exist. Then one by one he systematically deconstructs the arguments as presented by Christian apologist Randal Rauser and presents a more skeptical view.
Although Mr. Vick doesn't have a theology degree, as The Great Agnostic Robert G. Ingersoll once said, even the layman can know just as much about God as any theologian. This may certainly be the case with Tristan Vick and his detailed, well researched, rebuttal to Christian apologist Randal Rauser.
Tristan Vick (a Christian turned atheist) takes on Rauser's popular brand of Evangelical Christianity and offers a worthy critique from a different school of thought. But this book comes with a warning to those that buy into Randal's form of contemporary Christianity: reading this book might just be hazardous to your faith.
Meanwhile, I just finished formatting a new book that collects some of my personal favorite essays that I wrote for my philosophy and religion blog The Advocatus Atheist in a book by the same name. The E-book should be ready for a March 1st release and then shortly followed by a paperback version later in the month. Here is the preview of the cover.
By day I am an educator and a cultural ambassador. By night I entertain notions of being a literary master. In reality I am just a family man and ordinary guy who works hard and loves writing just about as much as I love my family. Just about.
