There IS a good reason why I haven't read The God Delusion
: never heard of it. Although I think I know the basic gist of it.....
In general though, the reason is this. To you, as an atheist, all books pretty much have the same value, spiritually talking. (Correct me if I'm wrong on that)
As a Christian though, I have a personal relationship with God and Jesus (who are the same person anyways). To keep up that relationship, I need to continuously grow closer to God, which means I have to become Christ-like (like Jesus). Right now, it doesn't matter if you believe that or not, that's just where I'm operating from.
Obviously, reading books with anti-God and anti-Jesus messages or views does NOT help me get closer to God nor become Christ-like. Honestly, the ONLY reason I would read a book like that would be to approach it logically, in the expectation of finding faulty reasoning.
Not to say all Christians think alike. Some Christians though Harry Potter was okay. There's some that don't like LOTR. Heck, there's even one I know that doesn't like Narnia because it has mythological creatures from Greek myths! How unusual is that?
I do respect you as a person, Matias, especially since you said you've read the Bible. Pretty much all the atheists I've known won't look at one, much less touch or open one.
