In a nation where religion plays such a big role, how can you raise a child without God? How do you instill morality, answer questions about mortality, and handle believers who expect to get a one-way ticket to heaven by converting you? Deborah Ann Mitchell, who has blogged and written columns on the subject, provides guidance to agnostics and atheists struggling with how to assert their beliefs in a reasoned, nonconfrontational, and honest manner.

This book is a very interesting for those of us who have deconverted. The chapters are short and easy to read. The book includes the author's personal positive experiences from raising her children free from religion. There are also some letters from parents facing religious dilemmas and her responses to them. I also liked the anecdotal stories by ex-Christians, Mormons and JWs that were reprinted.
