A wickedly witty satire, The Loser Letterschronicles the conversion of a young adult Christian to atheism. With modern humor rivaling that of the media lampooningOnion, found on college campuses all over America, A. F. Christian s open letters to the spokesmen of the New Atheism explain her reasons for rejecting God and the logical consequences of that choice. Along the way she offers pithy advice to famous atheists such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, in the hope of helping them win over more Christians. Of course we score big time with the young guys who aren t responsible for anything, and don t really care about anything besides spending most of their time in the basement playing video games and texting girls, A.F. Christian points out. But what about all those serious, thoughtful people who are Christian believers? If the New Atheism is to make real headway, she argues, its advocates must do more to persuade intelligent theists living meaningful and fulfilling lives. Amid the many current books arguing for or against religion, social critic and writer Mary Eberstadt sThe Loser Lettersis truly unique: a black comedy about theism and atheism that is simultaneously a rollicking defense of Christianity. Echoing C.S. Lewis Screwtape Lettersand Dante sDivine Comedy, Eberstadt takes aim at bestsellers likeThe God DelusionandGod Is Not Greatwith the sexual libertinism their authors advocate. In her loveable and articulate tragic-comic heroine, A.F. Christian, Dawkins, Hitchens and the other Brights have met their match."
