Good book to make a theist friend think freely?
I have a friend who is 19, and a believer of God, vampires, astrology and telepathy. She has no interest in serious books. So, is there any book like 'The God Delusion' for people who do not read serious things? I mean, "The God Delusion For Dummies'? Is there any simple book?

This is important. I want to help her think freely.

Welcome. I wish I could help....maybe someone else knows?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Why? Is she unhappy?

"Vampires"? Really? Freakin' vampires? Is there a specific brand this woman believes in? Dracula? Edward Cullen? The Count? Rolleyes


Is there a reason you're asking specifically for a book? Have you tried dragging her into reality on your own?

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

I haven't read it yet, but Seth Andrew's latest book Sacred Cows could be a great one to choose.

"Another Roadside Attraction" by Tom Robbins might amuse her.. It did me....

Sounds like she is already all over the place. Vampires, astrology, and telepathy don't mesh all that well with Christianity.

Sounds like she is trying out different things.

I find it's really difficult to get a non-reader to read. Has she asked about something to read? If not, chances are your best bet would be to talk with her about things that you have read and go from there.
