First there was Richard Dawkins’s God Delusion. Then came Christopher Hitchens’s God Is Not Great. Now comes Francis Terrene's Church Myths, a candid and hard-hitting exposé of the myths Christian churches used to manipulate people's mind. It's a must for believers to know the fickleness of their beliefs. And for atheists, to have a sound philosophical foundation for a secular worldview. Take it from someone coming from the inner chamber of the church. Francis Terrene is a theologian-clergyman—an atheist itching for the right time to be free from his holy garb. He holds a PhD in Theology, aside from other graduate degrees in religion and philosophy. His previous Christian books were highly commended by leading theologians and church leaders. The name is a pen name. You're welcome to visit his website at: www.FrancisTerrene.com

Apr 23, 2014"It is brave of you, as a clergyman, to speak out like this. It is especially important for "insiders" to the faith to testify to its problems." —Elizabeth S. Anderson, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor and John Dewey Distinguished University Professor of Philosophy and Women's Studies, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. "Francis Terrene, a clergyman for 34 years and a devoted Christian for 51 years, has escaped the cave of Christianity and has awakened to a world of wonder—the real world. Now, ... he returns to the cave to share his discoveries with those who still know only the shadow-world of faith. Perhaps more importantly, however, he also explains to those outside the cave the questionable means by which the shadows still are being projected on the wall, the motives of the agents running the shadow projectors, and why secularism must replace supernatural religion. —Frank R. Zindler, Editor, American Atheist Press "Terrene, a former clergyman himself and... More > thus an observer from the inside, wastes no words in recounting the various indignities, horrors, or absurdities of this institution, which has had and continues to have so much presence in and influence on the social world." —Jan Narveson, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Philosophy Department, University of Waterloo; Order of Canada 2003. "Francis Terrene has written an eloquent book about his ideas on religion and Christianity. What makes this book special is the personal and insightful perspective that Terrene brings into his writing. It is the result of Terrene being a core part of the church for many years before becoming an atheist." —Zoltan Istvan, National Geographic and New York Times former correspondent, and author of the bestselling The Transhumanist Wager. "Church Myths is a passionate exposé on the damaging nature of religion.... He also illuminates the many nonsensical ways that various denominations brand themselves, market their products, and psychologically manipulate their followers. If you’re looking for a no-holds-barred critique of religion in general and Christianity in particular, this book fits the bill. —John Winsor, award-winning musician and author of What Your Preacher Didn't Tell You.< Less
