The End of Faith Religion Terror and the Future of Reason Book Excerpt:

"The End of Faith articulates the dangers and absurdities of organized religion so fiercely and so fearlessly that I felt relieved as I read it, vindicated....Harris writes what a sizable number of us think, but few are willing to say."—Natalie Angier, New York Times In The End of Faith, Sam Harris delivers a startling analysis of the clash between reason and religion in the modern world. He offers a vivid, historical tour of our willingness to suspend reason in favor of religious beliefs—even when these beliefs inspire the worst human atrocities. While warning against the encroachment of organized religion into world politics, Harris draws on insights from neuroscience, philosophy, and Eastern mysticism to deliver a call for a truly modern foundation for ethics and spirituality that is both secular and humanistic. Winner of the 2005 PEN/Martha Albrand Award for Nonfiction.

Summary of Sam Harris s The End of Faith Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 A belief is a lever that, once pulled, moves almost everything else in a person’s life. Your beliefs define your vision of the world, your behavior, and your emotional responses to other people. #2 The problem is that many of our most cherished beliefs about the world are leading us to kill one another. We cannot tolerate the possibility that certain ideas might lead to eternal happiness, because that would be intolerant of other faiths. #3 We have been slow to recognize the positive effects of religious faith. Many of us still believe that faith is an essential component of human life, and that there are good things that people get from religious faith that cannot be had elsewhere. #4 Many religious moderates have taken the high road of pluralism, asserting the equal validity of all faiths, but they forget that each faith’s beliefs are inherently irredeemably sectarian.

Christ and the End of Meaning Book Excerpt:

Both liberal and conservative churhes offer the world "meaningful Christianity". Hessert argues that "meaning" itself is the problem that Christ and His teachings sought to solve. The Gospel is not about meaning, but an alternative to the very structure and stricture of meaning. He proposes living with patience and passion through joys and suffering--for passion is the life of the soul.

Letter to a Christian Nation Book Excerpt:

From the new afterword by the author: Humanity has had a long fascination with blood sacrifice. In fact, it has been by no means uncommon for a child to be born into this world only to be patiently and lovingly reared by religious maniacs, who believe that the best way to keep the sun on its course or to ensure a rich harvest is to lead him by tender hand into a field or to a mountaintop and bury, butcher, or burn him alive as offering to an invisible God. The notion that Jesus Christ died for our sins and that his death constitutes a successful propitiation of a “loving” God is a direct and undisguised inheritance of the superstitious bloodletting that has plagued bewildered people throughout history. . .

The Bridge of Faith Book Excerpt:

The essentials of the Christian faith, from Creation to the Second Coming, are explained by a layman for laypeople. From a traditional evangelical perspective, well grounded in Scripture, the author concludes that the Kingdom of God is accessed across a bridge of faith and under a white flag, surrendering the believers time, talents, energy and resources to the King. This book will prepare Christian witnesses to give their testimony on behalf of the gospel.

God Is Not Great Book Excerpt:

Whether you're a lifelong believer, a devout atheist, or someone who remains uncertain about the role of religion in our lives, this insightful manifesto will engage you with its provocative ideas. With a close and studied reading of the major religious texts, Christopher Hitchens documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos. With eloquent clarity, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope's awesome view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix. In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris's The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion.

On Love Confession Surrender and the Moral Self Book Excerpt:

The Reading Augustine series presents concise, personal readings of St. Augustine of Hippo from leading philosophers and religious scholars. Ian Clausen's On Love, Confession, Surrender and the Moral Self describes Augustine's central ideas on morality and how he arrived at them. Describing an intellectual journey that will resonate especially with readers at the beginning of their own journey, Clausen shows that Augustine's early writing career was an outworking of his own inner turmoil and discovery, and that both were to summit, triumphantly, on his monumental book Confessions (AD 386-401). On Love, Confession, Surrender and the Moral Self offers a way of looking at Augustine's early writing career as an on-going, developing process: a process whose chief result was to shape a conception of the moral self that has lasted and prospered to the present day.
