Dr. Dawkins,

I'm a former Baptist minister. I read Sam Harris' The End of Faith in late 2006 and it scared me because it made so much sense that I had to put it away. I got it back out about a year later and finished it. It confirmed what were, at the time, my worst fears. The Bible didn't make sense, my religion didn't make sense, and my life's work, up to that point, didn't make sense.

I got your book, The God Delusion, and it just drilled the point home. I want to thank men like you and Sam Harris for being strong enough to put this information out there. I feel like a new person, free and alive for quite possibly the first time in my life.

It is nice to be free of the bonds of religion. Thanks for helping me get there.
