The synopsis reads: “Life is an amazing thing, filled with happiness, optimism, sadness and pain. Theists have said atheists are incapable of experiencing the beauty of life because they do not believe in a god. Furthermore, theists have said the grieving process is ruined because atheists generally do not believe in an afterlife. In his fourth book, Facing Oblivion, J. D. Brucker argues against those claims to show it’s possible to live fruitfully and grieve properly without a belief in a god.”

“Reason over Faith: Antitheism & the Case against Religion” – Now Available!

“Reason over Faith: Antitheism & the Case against Religion” – Updates

Final CoverReason over Faith: Antitheism & the Case against Religion is edited and awaiting release! Stay tuned for more information.

The synopsis goes as such: Many contend religion is, in its entirety, tolerant and stands as a force for good. Millions of human beings worship a god and follow the doctrine of their chosen faith, never considering how harmful their beliefs may be. In Reason over Faith: Antitheism & the Case against Religion, J. D. Brucker takes a stand against all that is considered holy, giving the reader an introduction to how the top three monotheistic religions and faith have failed the human race in a miserable way.

Joey Lee Kirkman recently published the foreword he wrote for my book on his personal website, which can be found here.

I’ve also supplied a sample chapter of my own, which can be found here.

I look forward to your responses once the book is released!

Chris from the Unbuckling the Bible Belt Podcast shares his thoughts on ‘Improbable’

Chris, a host from Unbuckling the Bible Belt, recently shared his thoughts on Improbable: Issues with the God HypothesisThis is what he had to say:

“I became acquainted with the writing of J.D. Brucker about a month ago when I came across a post of his on Dan Arel’s Patheos blog, Danthropology. It was a bittersweet vignette about the death of a mentor and friend that he had lost contact with. When he tried to reconnect some time later, he found it out that in the intervening time, his friend had died in an accident. Rather than this story being one of despair and hopelessness, however, he told of his realization that death was just a word, and that what was truly important was to remember those who have died, and to live your own life fully.
