I was a Christian for 37 years and am now an atheist for the past 4-5 months. My wife is an open minded Christian. I believe she is only holding on because of the way family will react.
She has agreed to consider my point of view via the following:
1 - she will read 1 short book
2 - she will watch one video
She has also agreed to read a paper written by myself covering why I no longer believe.
I am mulling my options. I was thinking of having her read "Letter to a Christian Nation" by Sam Harris and having her watch a lecture given by Bart Ehrman on the Bible's errancy.
So give 'em to me! What are your suggestions as to what to have her consider.
I was deep in the Charismatic Movement when the news about the mass suicide of the Jim Jone's cult hit the nation. I guarantee you that every church had the same sermon the Sunday after:
"Isn't it great that we're following the Holy Spirit and not some demon like those poor people."
It was one of the crucial factors leading to my split with Christianity.
