David asked:

Will this book convince anyone to change their minds about God or is Dawkins just "preaching to the choir"?

Avid I feel like it will encourage some people, particularly teens, to examine the foundations of the religion into which they may have been indoctrinated. It allows the space, intellectually, to land on the side of science and reason. I don’t feel like it’s heavy-handed, nor is it “preaching to the choir”. It just opens up the land of intellectual curiosity to those who may be struggling to make sense of their religion’s teachings.
