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.”

Praise for Facing Oblivion:

From Matthew O’Neil, author of You Say That I Am: Jesus and the Messianic Problem:

“Brucker’s works tend to be blunt, concise, and insightful takedowns of the Abrahamic faiths. If nonspecific to those, then supernaturalism, in general, is given a proper thrashing with Brucker’s words.

In his latest, the author gives heart-wrenching details about the passing of his grandparents, separated by a few short weeks, and how the effect rippled through his life. His relationship with his wife strengthened, his appreciation for the time we have realized, and the minutia of life put under a magnifying glass. It becomes hard to hold back the tears.

All told, we all grieve in very similar ways. The question that Brucker then addresses, and answers, is what do we do with the time we are given? And, better still, why giving supernatural destinations and answers for questions about life beyond life are fruitless, and indeed harmful. Please read this book!”
