Patience with God

Schaeffer, Frank. Patience with God. Cambridge: Da Capo Press, 2009.

This book details the beliefs of several influential athiests and contrasts these beliefs, and their accompanying actions, to similar beliefs and/or actions of evangelical Christians.  Unfortunately, I didn't have much patience for this book.  I definitely gave the book the "100 page test" that I taught my students to use; unfortunately, this book failed that test miserably.  Perhaps I just don't have the brain for this type of reading, but I wouldn't bother with this book if I were you.  There are other much more digestible and interesting books on the same topic.
