Nice review of 50 Voices of Disbelief
Our book got a nice review at Metapsychology. Check it out. Roger Chao writes (in part):
Overall, this book is well suited for a mainstream audience, interested in questioning the power that religion holds over our lives. Being an item of non-fiction for a general audience, it has surprisingly good references at the end of some chapters (by academic writers that is), which will also serve to guide the reader if further information is wanted. Thus, I recommend this book to anyone (regardless of their views concerning religion) interested in understanding why different people hold certain views concerning religion.
I also noticed that we've got now some 13 or so customer reviews on amazon.com . Virtually all of them are very positive.
Addendum: April 14, 2010
Here's another review of the book, on the website of the Diocese of Brandon of the Anglican Church in Canada. As you'd expect of such a site, the review is somewhat mixed, but, considering where the reviewer is coming from it seems fair enough. Its praise for gay rights activist Peter Tatchell, one of the volume's contributors, took me well and truly by surprise.
