PURE THEISM: One Step Out of Atheism

RESPONSE TO COMMENTS

ABOUT MY CHAPTER ONE, POSTED THERE
 
[Note: Yes, amazingly, Hemant Mehta, one of America's most prominent atheists, posted Chapter 1 of my just-published book The End of Unbelief on his popular blog The Friendly Atheist, knowing his aggressively atheist readers would attack it -- and me -- mercilessly.  They did not disappoint.  Over 500 comments made me feel their passionate contempt for my views.  Then Hemant was kind enough to let me write a response to those comments.

THE START OF MY PUBLIC LIFE

This update appeared on my Facebook page on Wednesday 9/10/14:
 
NEW ERA! Well, yesterday was the official release date for my book. It passed quietly, but a couple of nice things happened and the new era has begun. Till now I've needed publishers. Now I need readers. This morning I had my first radio interview about the book -- small station, YES FM in Toledo, Ohio. 

The MC Tommy Briggs phoned me at 8:30 and drew me out about the book for 15 minutes. This was my first time ever on radio or TV, and it went fine.
