“The book is beautifully written”: Amazon Review from Barbara A. Meissner

Got a nice customer review on Amazon for Coming Out Atheist: How To Do It, How to Help Each Other Do It, And Why! Five stars out of five. (In fact, the book now has six customer reviews — and they’re all five stars out of five!) Here’s what Barbara A. Meissner had to say:

Good advice

What I like about this book is that Christina has really considered a great many different situations that the atheist about to come out may face, even including when it might be best NOT to come out. She is acknowledges that the bias against and even fear of atheists may lead to real trouble in families, and her compassion for the distress of family members is striking, yet she also advises not taking too much abuse for being honest. She has collected stories from hundreds of atheists and used their experiences to inform her thoughts on the subject. The book is beautifully written. I can recommend it to any closeted atheists and also to those of us who are well and truly out.

Thanks, Barbara! And if any of you have read Coming Out Atheist, it’d be awesome if you’d post a review.

One thought on ““The book is beautifully written”: Amazon Review from Barbara A. Meissner

  1. 1

    I’m about a quarter of the way through, and I ran across a familiar surname with a backstory that couldn’t have been a coincidence. It turns out that one of the people whose story you share is my wife’s cousin’s son. A quick Facebook search confirmed this to my satisfaction, so I sent a private message to him, to which he replied briefly. He hasn’t read the book yet and didn’t know whether his story had made it in.

    In any case, I’m sure I’ve seen him in the past, probably when he was just a little kid, but finding him in your book was very encouraging to me as I wouldn’t have even known otherwise that there was another atheist in the family. Now I have someone else to talk to.

    A big part of your point in the book is that coming out can encourage other people, and this proves that to be the case. And it’s a direct result of my reading the book, so there are double points for encouragement.
