I'll pass. It's all crap like "washed in Jesus' blood" and other demented concepts.

Depends on what you're looking for. I think most of the God Delusion to me felt like a elongated reference guide or it's kind of an introductory text to various ideas studies on religious thought. There was sections he'd write a little bit then refer, well for more info look at these other books or studies.

So I would only recommend it if you want to know a bit more about various arguments or thoughts about religion.

The God Delusion by Dawkins
god is Not Great by Hitchens
The Missionary Position by Hitchens
Biblical Nonsense by Jason Long (I haven't finished this one yet, but it too is pretty good)

And there are some other good sources of info out there too. Like Skeptics Magazine and the Skeptical Inquirer.

But yes, yes the God Delusion is certainly worth a read or two.

RE: Is GOD DELUSION by Richard Dawkins worth a try?
When I read the book, I was more surprised that the ideas that were floating around in my head were put to paper by someone else. I was really thinking I was crazy until I realized that I was nowhere near the only person who thought like this. It was quite a liberating read for me.

That is exactly how I felt while reading this book too. It wasn't like "oh, what this guy is saying makes sense, I agree", it was like "is he reading my mind???"
