Book Review on Patriotic Treason: John Brown and the Soul of America by Evan Carton

Patriotic Treason: John Brown and the Soul of America by Evan Carton My rating: 4 of 5 stars John Brown. The John Brown Gun Clubs.

Book Review: Bart Ehrman’s Did Jesus Exist?: The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth

Well, unfortunately I'm rather livid at the moment because even though I had written I do not have the time or energy for a proper review due to severely bad health and a late time of night, I had just spent 1.5 hours working on the BEGINNING of a review, presumably saving as I went …

Book Review: Henry Ford’s “The International Jew”

Book Review: The Tragedy of U.S. Foreign Policy: How America’s Civil Religion Betrayed the National Interest

The Tragedy of U.S. Foreign Policy: How America's Civil Religion Betrayed the National Interest by Walter A. McDougall My rating: 2 of 5 stars I didn't like this book. And my criticisms are probably unfair, because the author most likely accomplished what he set out to do. I think I merely misinterpreted or misunderstand the …

A Review of Deconversion: a Journey from Religion to Reason

Deconverted: a Journey from Religion to Reason by Seth Andrews My rating: 5 of 5 stars Fantastic book! Seth Andrews lived my own exact life growing up, and we were both traumatized by the same types of things (the movie, "Thief In The Night!"), and we were both fundies/evangelicals for much of our younger lives …
