“A highly readable, helpful guide”: Review of “Coming Out Atheist” in The Humanist

In Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other, and Why Greta Christina provides a highly readable, helpful guide to the issues atheists face on whether and how to come out as an atheist. While seemingly narrow in scope, the book’s audience is actually wider than you might think. As Christina points out, coming out is a process that never ends for atheists, as even those who already consider themselves out are constantly entering new situations where the suggestions and examples in this book can be applied.

Thus begins David Chivers’ review in The Humanist of Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other, and Why. Here’s one more quote:

Christina is an excellent writer and journalist. Her style is breezy and easy to read, and she follows up general points with specific, real-life coming out stories and experiences that are illustrative of the larger point. She has a good way of telling stories of people who have come out and how they dealt with specific situations.

Many thanks to David for the thoughtful and flattering review. To read more, read the rest of the review!

    A little more than half way through the Audible version and have learned more than I thought I would have given I’ve been atheist all my life. Like atheist groups in progressive areas are not as strong/active as in the bible belt. Never would have thought that but see it and makes sense.

    I have even seen a couple of my anecdotes. 🙂
