Unfortunately, they do not actually read the bible.
Hence I would give God's Problem by Bart Ehram as that uses the coveted KJV to show its own downfall.

Question: If you had the opportunity to give ONE book to a believer in an attempt to get them to think (note: I did not say 'convert' or 'un-see the light', but to THINK). What book would it be?

The Demon Haunted World?
The God Delusion?
(or ANY other book; this is just a few that I was considering...)

Thanks in advance!

I'm an American from the state of Iowa and nothing in law interests me more than the separation of church and state.

Hi, everyone! I recently joined Atheist Nexus after receiving an Email bulletin from American Atheists, of which I'm a life-member. I served as Vice-Director of the Connecticut Chapter from 1984 to 1987. I would appreciate correspondence from fellow atheists.

Naomi, if you have found inner peace in realizing your atheism, then you own members of your family nothing.

"The Zen master Hakuin was praised by his neighbours as one living a pure life.
A beautiful Japanese girl whose parents owned a food store lived near him. Suddenly, without any warning, her parents discovered she had a child.
This made her parents angry. She would not confess who the man was, but after much harassment at last named Hakuin.
In great anger the parent went to the master. "Is that so?" was all he would say.
After the child was born it was brought to Hakuin. By this time he had lost his reputation, which did not trouble him, but he took very good care of the child. He obtained milk from his neighbours and everything else he needed.
A year later the girl-mother could stand it no longer. She told her parents the truth - the real father of the child was a young man who worked in the fish market.
The mother and father of the girl at once went to Hakuin to ask forgiveness, to apologize at length, and to get the child back.
Hakuin was willing. In yielding the child, all he said was: "Is that so?""

Don't concern yourself with their religious struggle. You've crossed that bridge. Don't look back. Show them the happy atheist and the content atheist, that your life makes sense now. You accept them as they are and it's their job to accept you as you are.
We are pretty much all minorities as atheists in america. But you are not alone and we all go through what you are going through at some point. Don't let them get you down!
