Praise for A Friendly Letter to Skeptics and Atheists “David Myers is the perfect person to write this book because he is both a skeptic and a theist, a world-class debunker of all things nonsense, and yet a man of faith. How can these two traditions be reconciled? Read this book to find out.”–Michael Shermer publisher of Skeptic magazine, monthly columnist for Scientific American, author of Why Darwin Matters, How We Believe, and The Science of Good and Evil “With winsome humor and refreshing humility, David Myers offers a compelling case for skeptics and secularists that mature believers are a lot more like them than they realize–committed to reason and evidence, and offended by misuses of religion by dogmatists with personal or political agendas. Yet he also shows how life can be enriched by embracing a spiritual worldview that adds to rather than subtracts from the search for truth. This is the perfect book for your friend who is an open-minded atheist or agnostic.”–Francis S. Collins M.D., Ph.D., director of the Human Genome Project and?author, The Language of God “Witty, disarming, engaging, informative, and above all, great fun to read. The best response to the ‘New Atheism’ to date.”–Alister McGrathOxford University, biophysicist-theologian and author, The Dawkins Delusion? Atheist Fundamentalism and the Denial of the Divine “Is religion evil? Psychologist Dave Myers concedes that evil acts have been done in the name of religion, but he challenges skeptics who condemn all religion to do their homework more carefully. I highly recommend this nonpolemical treatment for thoughtful readers of all persuasions.”
–Owen Gingerich professor of Astronomy & History of Science Emeritus, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and author, God’s Universe “With humility, erudition, and a profound commitment to scientific truth, Myers has given us the book we must all read before we jump to conclusions about the nature and value of religion.”–Jonathan Haidt University of Virginia psychologist and author, The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom
