The Atheist Bible
One man, whose views nearly cost him his life, finds introspective self examination leads him to an understanding of his own personal atheist morality. On his way he examines some fundamental aspects of our culture, coming to conclusions that are sometimes surprising.
An eye opening book that gives morality back to humanity, and a chance to understand atheism in a new, positive light.
Michael Leamy has created an atheist work for the rest of us. Humanity is returned to the front of the line and our gods, all of our gods, are examined and reminded of their place. The Atheist Bible is both a warning and a celebration – a metaphor for what we are, and what we should try to become.
“This book is not what the title suggests. You open the first page and in the opening paragraph Michael Leamy grabs your eyeballs and screams into your mind till you realize something was wrong with your concept of what The Atheist Bible would be. This book is not a debate on atheism versus theism, or even a list of commandments for the Atheist.
It is something very different, very gripping. As you begin reading this book, you realize that it isn’t what you expected just as clearly as someone does as their face slams into the windshield of their car while said car tears into an immovable, concrete bridge abutment. The impact tears you out of your comfort zone just that violently, and you wake up a few pages in, knowing you’ll be indelibly changed by reading The Atheist Bible. So what are you waiting for? Read it.”

“I really enjoyed this book. It’s a journey about one man’s discovery. It isn’t what I expected and surprised me with raw life and feelings. There are moments that made me laugh and others I found sad and heartbreaking but a truth in what we as humans face in our lives. This isn’t a book that is in your face about atheism but it is a good that will remind you about your actions and actions of others. Honestly, it left me on a high note, what will I do to make this a better place, what will you do? Give it a read.”

“This book is unique. In it, Mr. Leamy weaves a didactic narrative with an intelligent, humane glimpse into the mind of a man at the lowest point in his life. It’s one part dialogue in the vein of The Republic, one part social commentary, and one part character study.
It’s provocative and marvelously written. A great read and a solid addition to the shelf of anyone concerned with social issues.”
Michael Herrman. Rated 5 out of 5 stars. Goodreads.com
“I found this book hard to put down. It is a gripping, moving, heartwarming, and suspenseful tale of recovery from a near death event occasioned by a moral redemption. The story line is interspersed with spot on commentary on the current state of the eternal battle between the forces of the dark ages and barbarity vs the forces of human progress. Well worth reading by believer and atheist alike. ”
