Edward Babinski, editor of the collection Leaving the Fold: Testimonies of Former Fundamentalists, reviewed my 2015 book Is the Atheist My Neighbor? at his blog. He writes:
“I applaud Randal’s attempt to spare atheists from being negatively stereo-typed by conservative Christians as the most blind, stupid, and vile lot of humanity. (Randal also would like to see Christians not negatively stereo-typed.) Randal invites his fellow Christians to view all people, including atheists, as individuals not as stereo-types (especially not as negative stereo-types) and see atheists treated with as much love and respect as the “neighbors” whom Jesus commanded his followers to love.”
However, Ed is not without criticism. For example, he goes on to challenge what he calls my “rosier” biblical interpretations. Later in the review he concludes:
“In summation, I hope more conservative Christians of all denominations get a chance to read and ponder Randal’s book, though I suspect that the broad “rebellion thesis” I mentioned above, rather than the narrow one that Randal focuses on in his book, is still something that will continue to divide not only Christians and atheists, but Christians with other Christians whose theologies and Bible interpretations or holy rites and practices differ.”
