Humanist Press is the publishing house of the American Humanist Association, providing material for the humanist/freethought/atheist market since 1995.

With new ebooks becoming available on a bi-monthly basis, Humanist Press will have a regularly expanding catalog of interest to atheist and agnostic humanists everywhere. Visit

How interesting would it be for atheists, agnostics and humanists to try and get on this new program! Below is the official pitch from the show's website.


Calling all church-goers and Bible study groups: GSN (Game Show Network) and the creators of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" are looking for you!

We are casting for GSN’s “The American Bible Challenge,” a new game show hosted by Jeff Foxworthy. We’re looking for lively individuals or teams who want to win money for their favorite charity.

We're looking for individuals or teams who have competitive spirits, great personal testimonies, a general knowledge of pop culture – and, of course, you have to know your Bible!

Come celebrate your faith, have fun with your friends and show off your Bible knowledge!!!
