Synopsis: What would lead the minister of one of Canada s largest mainline Protestant congregations, a syndicated religion columnist, broadcaster and author of Christian devotional material, to change his mind and become an atheist? In Life Beyond Belief: A Preacher s Deconversion, this onetime Christian apologist offers not only a testimony of what led him to take early retirement but a thoughtful and analytical compendium of the inconsistencies and delusions of religion. Far from being a gloomy tale, however, this is a story of how deconversion from faith can transform a life in ways that are no less radical and joyful as conversion to faith. Life Beyond Belief is an erudite manifesto of reason that will challenge believers and non-believers alike.
