The Atheist Vignettes is a collection of “associative fiction” presented as short stories, news reports, internet exchanges and other formats that loosely tie together the lives of several former members of a long-defunct youth ministry – the Chris†eens. Grown now and gone their separate ways, featured members of the former fundamentalist group make their initial appearance at the start of the book, then are sporadically resurrected amid a wide spread of subject matter that ranges from comic stage-play ditties starring mythic divinities to terrorist musings to cult interactions to personal interviews, all presented in a Biblically significant number of “Acts” (7) and chapters (40). The book’s author even appears as one of the characters.
This avant garde novella blends theater and narrative with journalistic reporting and even internet chat to make its points. Often highly satirical and amusing while scathingly poking holes in the armor of religious belief, The Atheist Vignettes is, of course, irreverent and sometimes intentionally didactic. This book will appeal most to intellectual non-theists, but anyone can enjoy the train ride, moving from car to car to car to the unexpected conclusion.
Join Jesse, David, Brice, Denver, Ethan, Naomi and Greg, along with Hasaam, Christian Ford Jesus, Judy, McGuff and Skeptickedoff and selected gods and founding fathers in the romp-and-circumstance spiritual “outing” called The Atheist Vignettes.
