Checking in.
This book isn't available in a Kindle version. However I found it as a downloadable book on my local library's web site. I can't get that to work so far - it provides a .acsm link, not a file??? Will ask a young-un for help. :roll: Please try this and let us know how the download works as well as how to get it on the bloody e-reader. Thanks!
Sounds like it has illustrations, so the hardback may be better anyway?

I would have preferred this one on kindle as well, but will buy the hard cover, which may take a few weeks. I read the previous Booktalk Dan Barker selection and formed the view that he was highly traumatised by his fundamentalist experience, to the point that he is terminally unable to look at religion objectively. So my interest in this discussion is about the psychological trauma of fundamentalism, and why Barker and Dawkins have formed such narrow and negative views about theology. Even if the factual analysis of this Unpleasant God book is correct, I very much doubt that Barker is capable of placing these problems in a sound historical and ethical framework.

Maybe we implement a new policy that all of our books need to be available in Kindle format. Like you guys I really prefer Kindle format to hard cover. I'm trying to avoid buying print books these days. I ordered a hard cover copy too. Next time we can discuss this issue ahead of time. Sorry for the hassle on this one guys.
