BARD "It's all in god's plan.'' How many times have you heard that? Christians use that phrase over and over again to avoid confronting many of our world's greatest problems and tragedies. They even use it to avoid thinking about the viciousness of the god portrayed in their bible. It's that very complacency that Martin L. Bard sees as being at the heart of the damage religious thought causes. As he states, religion "dulls the senses," keeping humankind from seeing the urgency of resolving the problems of pollution and war. To combat this complacency, he reviews some of the basic issues Atheists face as they confront religion: ++the arguments for religion ++the terrors religious institutions have inflicted ++the fallacies of basic Christian doctrines ++the contradictions and ethical horrors of the Bible Bard also reviews the positive aspects of Atheism and the logical arguments for it. He introduces the reader to some of the heroes of Atheism and to the nonreligious foundation of the United States. _The Peril of Faith_ is an excellent starter book for your doubting friends, providing the facts they need to begin their own investigations of religion. You can benefit from it also, as it succinctly reviews the basic issues between religion and Atheism, stating our positions in an articulate but unaffected manner. Its index will help you thumb right to the page you need to help you in any discussion of the elemental reasons why religion is harmful to our species and our planet. 175 pages. Paperback. Index. Stock #5012. ******************** AN ATHEIST PRIMER ******************** BY MADALYN O'HAIR This illustrated children's book will help preschoolers understand where the idea of religion and god came from. Easy to understand explanations will help kids (and some adults) steer clear of religious dogma. 32 pages. Stapled. Stock #5372. ******* PAGAN ORIGINS OF THE CHRIST MYTH ******** BY JOHN G. JACKSON The idea that a savior-god must die for the sins of man and then be resurrected is a lot older than Christianity.

Stock #5204. ******************* THE GREAT INFIDELS ******************** BY ROBERT G. INGERSOLL How often have you been asked, "What would the world be like without religion?"
