Please join us for our Voices of Reason lecture series with author Dan Barker speaking about his new book, The Good Atheist .

Christians often claim that people who do not believe in God are unable to find true fulfillment and live a purpose-driven life. In The Good Atheist , author Dan Barker constructs a simple moral argument for finding happiness through altruistic living — without calling upon the notion of God’s reward or punishment. Barker outlines an easy-to-follow plan for making these principles part of one’s everyday life. Profiles of many notable atheists serve to emphasize these points and provide inspiring examples of freethinkers who have made the world a better place.

Dan Barker, a former preacher, is co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation and author of Godless: How An Evangelical Preacher Became One of America's Leading Atheists (Foreword by Richard Dawkins, Ulysses Press, 2008) and The Good Atheist: Living a Purpose-Filled Life Without God (Foreword by Julia Sweeney, Ulysses Press, 2011).
