Seems to be more of a letter to atheists than to Christians. I've yet to find a truely compelling message to divert humanity away from religious thought, and Letter to a Christian Nation is far too accurate and on point to be convincing to a Christian mind.

One concept which I've found to be unique in this book is this: the word "Atheist" should not exist. There is no term in English which identifies someone who denies the existance of Aliens. There isn't a word for people who deny that Elvis is still alive. Why then is there a term for people who deny a supernatural chum such as the judeao-christian god?

Of course the word exists for a reason; over 80% of the country believes in this diety. That's kind of the problem.

Interesting argument in this one about slavery being a very Christian idea, though they didn't create it, the bible very much supports it.
