Utne Reader magazine reviews 'Faitheist'

Utne Reader magazine has a review of Faitheist in their January-February 2013 issue. Here's some of what they had to say about the book:

It's a tall task to change the public discourse on religion... A self-avowed atheist with a theological education, Stedman's unique background makes him the perfect conduit for constructive discussion on the issue, and he does it with aplomb in his new book Faitheist... He's still passionate about the community outreach that his initial leap of faith allowed him to pursue, and while he's firm in his current unbelief, his own experience with intolerance has taught him the importance of avoiding the all-too-easy name-calling and divisiveness that society gratitates toward. Funny and insightful, you could almost say that Faitheist is a sermon on the importance of finding common ground with one another, differences be damned.
