This book presents Deism as a natural and rational bridge that unites our reason to our belief in God. It propels us from the false and destructive ancient myths to a space-age belief system this is in line with our God-given reason!

Written in a concise and cogent style, Deism: A Revolution in Religion, A Revolution in You is a great introduction to Deism as well as a solid source of profound growth material for Deists who already have a firm understanding of the basics.

This book covers some very important topics such as the difference between God and religion, the power of Deism to help people in their personal lives as well as to help society progress, the ability of Deism to defuse the Christian push for violence and world war based on their potentially self-fulfilling prophecy of Armageddon, Deism being the more rational choice over Atheism and Agnosticism among many other critical and important issues.

Deism: A Revolution in Religion, A Revolution in You is loaded with motivating and enlightening insights from the author as well as from such people as Thomas Paine, Ethan Allen, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Albert Einstein, Antony Flew, Jennifer Aniston, Bill Maher and many more!

The Bible Naked, The Greatest Fraud Ever Told by Sam Warren. This is an important book because it defangs the Bible with the Bible. Using Bible content which is usually glossed over, if even mentioned at all, the author makes it crystal clear the Bible is NOT the "word of God." Humor is found on every page and it also contains many laugh creating cartoons. This book is not only entertaining, it is a great source of Biblical documentation which proves the Bible to be false.

 

 

The Future of Man - Extinction or Glory by Peter Hollings is a brand new book that demands our attention. To survive, our species must shed its tribal past and become united. This will require a new unifying concept of God that is consistent with modern man’s reason and knowledge. There is a way!

 

 

The Lost Symbol is a gripping and powerfully suspenseful new novel by best selling author (Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code) Dan Brown. As people who are familiar with the goals of the World Union of Deists know, one of our priority goals is to make Deism a household word. This books helps to do that by mentioning that many of America's founders were Deists who wanted Deism to "replace the darkness of outdated religious superstitions." Thank you Dan Brown!

 

 

God & Human Beings by Voltaire. This is the first English translation of this great thought provoking book the the great French Deist, Voltaire! Although the editors show their lack of understanding of Deism, it is good to see they admit Voltaire was a Deist and not an Atheist. This book gives some great insight into God and Reason!

 

 

On the True Doctrine is a powerful thought provoking book written by the ancient Greek philosopher Celsus.  Celsus objectively dismantles the Semitic superstition known as Christianity. When Christians have both the physical and legal power, they burn books that prove them wrong. This book is one that survived the Christian rage due to the Christian apologist Origen who quoted heavily from it in the apology he wrote against it prior to the Christians consolidating their power in Rome.

 

 

This book includes most of Thomas Paine's important writings, including Common Sense, The Crisis, The Rights of Man and The Age of Reason.

 

 

There is a God is a great book written by the former life long proponent of Atheism, Antony Flew. Mr. Flew evolved into a Deist in 2004. This book is co-written by a Christian who doesn't even mention the words "Deist" or "Deism" in either his preface or his appendix to the book. However, Mr. Flew writes in the first line of his introduction, "Ever since the announcement of my 'conversion' to deism, . . . "! Finally, Deism is beginning to get the attention it deserves! Mr. Flew gives great reasons why Atheism is flawed.

 

 

Reason: The Only Oracle of Man by Ethan Allen. This is a great book written by the American Revolutionary War hero, Ethan Allen. The logic found in this work is strong and helps to separate Nature's God from the mythical Bible god as well as to elevate our God-given reason to its proper place!

 

 

When Prayer Fails - Faith Healing, Children, and the Law Every year children die due to superstition embraced by their parents or guardians. The superstition which is addressed by this book is the Christian teaching of faith healing. Our God-given reason tells us to give medical care to sick or injured people, especially little children. Sadly, many people who are trapped by Christianity and the Bible don't allow medical help to reach their children. This book also addresses the unreasonable and deadly state and federal statutes that make child abuse, if done for religious "reasons", legal.

 

 

The Dark Side of Christian History is a very important book to give you a solid understanding of what life was like before the revolutionaries brought about separation of church and state! Burning people alive for disagreeing with religious dogma was common. This book is very well documented!

 

 

The Pope and the Heretic is a great read! Giordano Bruno was a 16th century Catholic monk who had the intelligence and courage to think and speak independently. Before Galileo, Bruno openly wrote and said that the universe is infinite and that the earth is not the center of it. For this he was arrested and burned alive. He is a true martyr for progress!

 

 

Giordano Bruno: Philosopher, Heretic is an interesting look at one of the true heros of progress. Bruno paid the ultimate price in speaking the truth to the superstition based unreasonable/ungodly Catholic Church - he was burned alive!

 

 

 

The Jefferson Bible makes it clear that Thomas Jefferson did not buy into the myth that Jesus was the son of God or that the Gospels are a part of the "word of God."  Jefferson actually cut and pasted the parts of the Gospels that he thought Jesus probably actually said into a collection that is now known as the Jefferson Bible.

 

 

Religious Life of Thomas Jefferson is an interesting look at Jefferson's deeply held religious/spiritual beliefs. It brings out the fact that he was a Deist!

 

 

The Priest, the Pastor and the Rabbi is a great  book loaded with over 800 religiously and politically incorrect jokes! Humor is one of God's top five gifts and this book helps to bring it out!

 

 

Moral Minority: Our Skeptical Founding Fathers is an interesting look at six key American Founders and how contrary to popular opinion, they were NOT Christians. It covers the quote from Benjamin Franklin in which he stated that after reading some quotes of Deists that were in a Christian tract in order for the Christians to refute them, he soon became a thorough Deist!

 

 

The Prince of War is an insightful look at the media darling of the evangelicals, Billy Graham. It points out and documents many facts that the popular media overlook about Graham's religious/political career. An interesting read.

 

 

Jewish Philosophy and the Crisis of Modernity is a very important look at what is behind the neoconservative movement that is currently promoting war for their desire to see the world living according to the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament). Leo Strauss was a Jewish professor who taught these ideas to neocons such as Paul Wolfowitz who was the driving force behind the attack and war on Iraq. The neocons are currently pushing for war with Iran in order to promote Israel's well being. This book contains many revealing essays and speeches of Leo Strauss. They are a must read for anyone who wants to understand the thinking of the enemies of peace and to stop the rush to war against Iran and eventually Syria.

 

 

War is a Racket is a powerful hard hitting book by former US Marine General Smedley Butler. Butler knew from first hand experience that war truly is a racket despite the noble sounding reasons governments give for starting wars. This book was written in 1932 but it's principles carry through to today. It can make you wonder how so many flags still fly today.

 

 

Assault on the Liberty is written by James M. Ennes, Jr. who was a US Navy officer onboard the USS Liberty when it was repeatedly attacked by Israeli fighter jets and torpedo boats. He wrote this book as an eye-witness who survived the terror of the unprovoked attack on the virtually unarmed ship flying the American flag. This book is a real eye-opener about the US government's relationship with Israel that has caused the deaths of not only the 32 US sailors and 2 US Marines who were killed onboard the USS Liberty, but also our unnatural and twisted US foreign policy for the Middle East that has cost US tax payers BILLIONS of dollars and the world millions of lives.

 

 

Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid is a thought provoking book by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. This book gives an objective look at the hell Israel is putting the Palestinian people through with the help of BILLIONS of U.S. tax dollars every year. This book so upset Israel-firsters that they are suing Carter and his publisher for $5 million!

 

 

Imperial Hubris is written by Michael Scheuer who was the leader of the CIA's team set up to deal with Osama bin Laden. This book pulls not punches as it spells out why 9/11 happened and answers many other very important questions that the politicians and media gloss over.

 

 

The Israel Lobby is the best written, researched and documented book on this very important question of who really runs US foreign policy for the Middle East. The Israel lobby is so powerful it has both Democrat and Republican politicians shaking in their boots while jumping through the hoops of "the Lobby"! A must read for anyone who wants to understand American politics and foreign policy.

 

 

Surviving Depression is a great book written by fellow Deist Robert Hamlett. Robert was a victim of depression for years. However, he learned how to overcome it. This book was written to help others through this obstacle many face in their lives.

 

 

The Descent of Man gives great insight into the laws of Nature. As Deists and freethinkers, we need to know the laws of Nature in order to follow them. This book does a great job in helping us do that. I give deep thanks to Charles Darwin for writing this important book!

 

 

On the Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life by Charles Darwin helps us to better understand Nature and the Designer of Nature by learning about the Laws of Nature.

 

 

Einstein is an in-depth and interesting look at Albert Einstein. Portions of this book cover Einstein's outlook on God and religion. Just as interesting is how Einstein looked at and worked with science.

 

 

Einstein and Religion is a great book about the great physicist Albert Einstein. It brings out his Deistic beliefs and, like the book Einstein, makes it clear he was not an Atheist nor a Pantheist. Great reading!

 

 

Meditations by the great Roman Stoic and Emperor Marcus Aurelius is loaded with practical advice for living a happy and fulfilled life. This is one of those books that should come with a highlighter!

 

 

Discourses of Epictetus is a thought provoking book with the writings of the tutor of Marcus Aurelius! Great ideas and input on living life to the fullest!

 

 

Art of Living by Epictetus. This is a practical guide to living a happy and productive life! The application of reason and common sense in our daily lives will make for a much better life. The Roman Stoics knew this just as Deists today know this.

 

 

Letters from a Stoic is a collection of letters written by the great Roman Stoic, Seneca. Seneca was born around the same time Jesus is said to have been born. It's interesting to compare the practical advice Seneca gives his readers compared to the twisted, ambiguous teachings credited to Jesus.

 

 

On the Good Life is an interesting collection of essays by the famous Roman philosopher, Cicero. Cicero was key in bringing Greek philosophy to Rome. His writings make you think and make you wish they were as well known as the Bible! It would be a much better world if they were!

 

 

Videos and DVDs

The Crossing is an outstanding movie about George Washington and the American rebels with their backs against the wall facing the real probability of complete defeat before the American Revolution was not even a year old. It's very inspiring because it is true. Just because the odds are strongly against you doesn't mean you can't win!

 

 

Religulous makes you think while you're laughing! It's a great thought promoting movie that not only entertains and educates, but it helps active Deists and freethinkers know what kind of arguments they are likely to encounter from those people currently trapped in the "revealed" religions.

 

 

The Life of Brian is a hilarious movie about Brian Cohen who was born in the manger next to Jesus and is mistaken for Jesus all of his life. It is really funny!

 

 

The Meaning of Life is another great comedy by Monty Python! It really makes you think and laugh!

 

 

Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a great off-beat classic comedy that pokes fun at the idea of the "holy grail"!

 

 

Red, White and Screwed. This is very funny and thought provoking stand-up adult comedy by Lewis Black. My favorite part is his take on the Old Testament god!

 

 

NOVA - Cracking the Code of Life is an interesting two hour program about the Human Genome Project and the outstanding work they've done to map the human genome and to further our understanding of DNA and the important impact it has on our lives.

 

 

Inherit the Wind is the classic movie starring Spencer Tracy about the Scope's Monkey Trial which brought out the forces for and against evolution. It's a well done and interesting movie.

 

 

USS Liberty Dead in the Water is a very powerful documentary about the vicious and unprovoked Israeli attack on the USS Liberty which resulted in the deaths of 34 American sailors and Marines. Some of the survivors are interviewed as are some of the assailants as well as military and political leaders on both sides. It is a very well rounded look at this despicable and inexcusable incident. It sheds light on the deadly "special" relationship the US politicians have with Israel.

 

 

The Rapture is an interesting film about a woman who is leading a meaningless life who "get's saved" and then all Hell breaks loose. Even though it deals with Christian and Biblical myths, it makes some interesting points and is thought provoking.

Latest News of Interest to Deists
A recent survey on religion shows there are 34 million Americans who are classified as "Nones", that is they do not embrace any of the "revealed" religions and the vast majority of them are not Atheists. In actuality, the vast majority of the "Nones" are actually Deists!

The survey shows a giant step forward for Deism in the fact that it actually uses the word "Deist" and for the very significant raw numbers it shows as representing the number of people who are Deists.  In reality, the number of Deists is actually higher than the survey shows because the survey uses an outdated definition of Deist. For a more accurate definition please see our Deism Defined page.

Astronomers report a recent study strongly indicates the Universe is infinite.
One of the reasons the freethinker Giordano Bruno was tortured and murdered by being burned alive by the Catholic Church during the Inquisition was that he said the Universe is eternal and infinite which violates the superstitions in the Bible found in Genesis. This new study vindicates Bruno.

Obama is making the mixing of church and state worse than ever before.
Obama supporters forget that when all is said and done, Obama is just another politician. This article shows he's proving that he is nothing but a politician by doing more than any other president to mix religion and government, especially through giving tax-dollars to religious organizations.
