    I certainly appreciate your thoughts on this book and how you weigh the good and the bad! I do hope to read the book to at least get some further perspective on it!

    Thank you. I’m spiritually seeking but dogmatics don’t really work for convincing people of religion. Tony describing his confirmation bias is not very convincing for those of us who want to believe but are unsure. Tony seems like a very nice man but his method of debate is not satisfying in the least.
