Not an easy book to read, as it dismisses Christians as primitive simpletons who still believe in the fables of the Bible. Most of the criticisms of the Bible I had heard of before and are hardly new. Other criticisms of the modern church are valid. But Mr. Templeton views of the world if they are true dont provide much hope. Things like the virgin birth, Jesus' miracles, crucifixion and ressurection are impossible according to human reason but isn't that what make them true. ( )

Book description
For more than twenty years, Charles Templeton was a major figure in the church in Canada and the United States. During the early 1950s, he and Billy Graham were the two most successful exponents of mass evangelism in North American. During those years, Templeton spoke nightly to crowds of 10,000 to 30,000 in cities across Canada, the United States, and Europe

However, increasing doubt about the validity of the Old Testament and the teachings of the Christian church that Jesus of Nazareth was God, the second person of the Trinity, finally brought about a crisis in his faith and in 1957 he resigned the ministry.

In Farewell to God, Templeton speaks out about the reasons for his abandonment of his faith. He challenges the validity of the central Christian beliefs and documents the accelerating decline of the Christian Church. [adapted from the book jacket]
