Review:
There is some cracking material in this book that is basically a sort of semi-fictionalised account of an internet email relationship between an Atheist and a Christian. A beautiful amount of logic, illogic, discussion and emotion poor out at times in either short disjointed bursts or longer letters of prose and consideration and in the main it's these longer sections that make this book a joy to read, because they dig and ask questions and reveal hidden bias and torturing dilemmas - on both sides. However I have to be honest and say the shorter bits, the 'Save Send Delete' bits make this book a nightmare at times too. When a screen is in front of you and you have messages or email or a forum then it's easy to follow the multiple discussions, however when transposed like this, without the header or footer or name that you get on screen, it makes it confusing and some of the good stuff gets lost in the noise instead.

I would still recommend this book for those looking for an interesting consideration of opposing arguments, but you'll probably want to read it in a more glossed over fashion that straight out unless you are a lot better at following the disjointed bits than I was.
