Product description

Review

Silverman's methods are refreshingly honest. He uncompromisingly believes in equality for everyone and the end of religious privilege in America, and he is not afraid to fight, using words, to bring about that reality. –Library Journal

“David Silverman is the bad boy of atheism and we need people like him. There's a tiresome breed of so-called atheists called the "I'm-an-atheist-BUT-heads". They love to put the emphasis on the "but", and go out of their way to emphasize how deeply they respect all faith although, with mawkish regret, they can't actually share it. David Silverman is not of their number, and how refreshing it is to read a book that is not afraid to speak the truth, sans apology.” ―Richard Dawkins

"This is one of the more enjoyable atheist reads I've come across.... I came away from Fighting God with some new ideas (which is saying something considering I do this for a living)....[I]f we [atheists] buckle down, work together, and have some fun while we're at it, we can make a real difference in the world." ― JT Eberhard, American Atheist Magazine

“To get Americans to accept gays as citizens and neighbors, we needed sensible understated gay people, but we also needed flaming queens. As atheists strive to be understood and accepted...well, let's just say David is kind of a flaming queen and I love him. Fighting God is David having it and flaunting it.” ―Penn Jillette, New York Times best selling author of God, No! Signs You May Already Be An Atheist and Other Magical Tales

“In all developed Western nations the arc of the moral universe has been bending toward justice because of secular forces. Since the rise of the Religious Right, however, America has been held back. Until now. Thanks in part to firebrand freedom fighters like David Silverman, we atheists are on the march. Silverman's Reason Rally was just the start. His new manifesto will help take our movement to national prominence and into the corridors of power where we can effect real change.” ―Michael Shermer, Publisher of Skeptic magazine, and author of The Moral Arc: How Science and Reason Lead Humanity Toward Truth, Justice, and Freedom

“David Silverman is an uncompromising hardliner with a deeply compassionate heart...his voice is clear, passionate, thoughtful, and funny.” ―Greta Christina, author of Why Are You Atheists So Angry?

“A sometimes funny, always informative look into the mind behind America's frontline of atheism. Dave reminds us that religion is everyone's enemy.” ―Taslima Nasrin, International Freedom Fighter and author of Shame and Revenge

About the Author

He lives in New Jersey with his wife and child. Fighting God is his first book.
