Same experience, read the first part, noticed it's based outright on the false religious premise that atheists are somehow afraid of dealing with death, afterlives, or the putative existence of God. Weird, as I've spent most of my adult life dealing with those exact questions.

This tired old trope made me lose interest right out of the gate. The book is clearly NOT written for atheists to try to persuade them there is a God, it's actually written to confirm and comfort already committed believers in a long exercise of confirmation bias.

It appears like a sort of emotional pornography, where the reader is constantly reminded of the assumed, suppressed existential angst that surely must exist on the atheist's side. It's intrinsically condescending to atheists, which is of course it's very purpose. To instigate a feeling of a sort of schadenfreude in it's theistic reader. Haha, this book really tells to to the atheist, niiiiiceee! :roll:
