If I were Siskel and Ebert I would give this book Two Thumbs Way Up. I must admit toward the end, I was dragging my feet, like you do when a book is really good and you don't want it to end.
Yes, it is blasphemy toward organized religion but it gives you tons of Bible verses to back up its premises. And besides, it's pure entertainment.
There's a prequel which I recommend you read first. The Road Trip Dialogues.
Ms. Richards is a great writer and has certainly done the homework - for you! And you don’t have to dig out and dust off your Bible. She lays it all out for you.
I only hope there will be a third book.

I have mixed feelings about this book.
On the one hand it enabled me to stretch my mind by grappling with alternative points of view, particularly about the relevance and basis for religious belief, and supported my own beliefs in the stupidity of war and of mindless patriotism.
On the other hand the views expressed are selective, not to say bigoted, and express only one point of view. Some of the situations and events described seem unbelievable even for the US. And I think it weakens the case the author presents to use two people who have fried their brains with drugs as the protagonists.
Worst of all, to someone who designs ebooks, is that plonked down in the middle of chapter one there is a several line shill from somebody or other offering his services as a proof reader.
