Maybe you were born to Christian parents and raised as a Christian. Or maybe you are just a part of a Christian nation. You might have attended church regularly, or maybe just on special occasions. If asked, you say that you believe in God, but you really never thought about what that means exactly. You are a well-educated person who accepts the idea of Biblical miracles, but only the more “reasonable” ones. You have read some of the Bible, mostly just parts of the New Testament, but never committed to reading the Bible cover to cover. You are a good person who admires the many “Christian values” as demonstrated by Jesus Christ. But something does not feel right.
In fact, the more you look around, the more you see a world absent of this perfect image of a perfect God. As much as you want to avoid critical thinking and “just let go and have faith”, you find that you cannot believe in something contrary to your logic and reason — no matter how much you want to. This might lead to feelings of guilt, insincerity, and/or hypocrisy. Yet you just can’t imagine living life without God, and you don’t have to.
When you start asking serious questions about God and religion, you begin to see through the stories of people living inside the stomachs of big fish, 900-year-old men, and bodies coming back to life after three days, and understand how man created God, and not the other way around. By daring to question “sacred” religion, challenging your childhood beliefs, and risking eternal damnation (okay, so there might be a minor side effect to reading this book), you will discover an appreciation for religion on a new level, as well as a renewed appreciation for the human race.
Through a unique blend of science, philosophy, theology, and a touch of humor, you will see how you can trust your logic and reason, be true to yourself, and embrace God -- not as a being, but as a concept -- The Concept.

A delightful combination of straight talk, friendly challenge and a singular absence of bitter ax-grinding... he shows in plain-spoken, engaging prose how his view (and mine!) just makes better common sense. I just love the section on heaven! This book is quite and achievement. Read it!
Loved this book! Awesome book. I read his new book first, "Logically Fallacious" (thanks to Dr. Robert M. Price) and found it extremely humorous and insightful. I laughed out loud several times. Same thing with this book. Bo has a way of putting into words things that I've always thought but haven't been able to articulate. Whether you're well learned in religion, or just a beginner, you won't regret buying this book.
Written for the thinking Christian. Outstanding work for the layperson coming to grips with those nagging questions for which "It's a mystery" is an insufficient answer. Well researched and clearly presented.
A Plethora of Information. I don't often write reviews, yes I am a bit lazy in that respect. But, this one that I think is really warranted. Contained within this book is a wealth of knowledge that the Author could have not accumulated within just the space of a few weeks; it must have taken years! I highly recommend this book.
