Buy Description Deconverted: A Journey from Religion to Reason is a well-written autobiography told with humor and heart by an "average" person. It is the story lived by many thousands of people in America and around the World every day--a story that could very well be your story of doubt and loss of religious faith. The reader will receive a first hand account of the experience of someone who was raised in a very Christian home by loving, devout, Christian parents in a majority Christian community, in the Bible Belt of Midwestern America and who, as an adult began to question his religious faith. Those who have doubts regarding their religious faith and religious dogma will find solace in knowing that it is indeed ok to question what you have been instructed to think by your parents, pastors and priests. The faithful will gain an understanding in simple terms as to why their loved ones and friends can and do quit their faith and turn away from religious dogma.

May 19, Blu rated it really liked it Seth Andrews, although not an author by trade, has pieced together a surprisingly creative and well thought-out composition in De-Converted, which details his personal transition from a completely devout, bible-loving Christian to full-on non-believing atheist.
I found the account of his personal journey out of theism and away from dogma, tremendously interesting as it provides amazing insight into the world of the devout Christian communities of the Deep South where extreme religiosity seems to be the norm; certainly eye-opening for a person who grew up in a largely moderate, non-outwardly religious environment. Once his journey had started, Seth was determined to learn as much as he could about the anti-religion movement that he knew so little about.
It was all so new to him; he had never experienced such blatant impertinence toward the very thing that for his entire life had been so revered, not only by him and his family, but also by his entire community. After reading all he could from the so-called new atheists, Hitchens, Dawkins, Harris, Dennett, Barker etc. Encroaching on 40, he found himself at the end of a year marriage, alone; isolated and scared. This was the first time that he had actually taken an objective look at it, and now that he had, he was dumbfounded by what he was seeing.
To face the truth now publicly would mean exposing himself to everyone that knew him, putting himself out there for all to see. The result was his first on-stage appearance at an Atheist convention. The transformation was complete and he has never looked back.
