The Honest Atheist: A Novel

Thor Ramsey

Hardback 2024-04-30

"Sam Seitz is a mildly successful, standup comedian who becomes good friends with bestselling atheist, Horton Murray, author of The Honest Atheist. In his book, Murray argues that nothing actually matters in life because existence is accidental. Horton Murray is known as “the man who made nihilism popular.”

When Sam’s nephew, Franky, not only becomes a devout fanboy of Horton Murray but insists the premise proposed in his book be applied to life, he takes Horton’s ideology more seriously than anyone ever thought possible—with deadly consequences. Thus, a lighthearted romp turns into a dark cautionary tale, shocking in its brutal depiction of taking an idea to its logical conclusion.

If it’s true that “all comic novels must be about matters of life and death,” The Honest Atheist obliges. This entertaining and thought-provoking tragicomedy provides clues to where our loss of public decency originates while telling a moving story of an unlikely friendship between an atheist and an evangelical Christian.

Part crime story and part apologetic treatise, The Honest Atheist is a comedic and binge-worthy work."

ENDORSEMENTS The Honest Atheist is funny. I mean, really funny. But that doesn’t keep it from being deeply insightful! Thor is a great writer who blends apologetics and humor together like Mary Poppins’ spoon-and-sugar thing. I highly recommend this book! -Jarret Lemaster Actor, producer at The Babylon Bee

“A unique blend of apologetics and comedy in a show biz plot you’ll want to chase to the end.” -Victoria Jackson Comedian, actress, author, Saturday Night Live alumni

“You’ve never read anything just like The Honest Atheist. It’s a literary smoothie concocted of equal parts stand-up comedy, serious philosophy, Christian apologetics, Bible exposition, and great storytelling. See? I told you, nothing like it. You’ll smirk over the humor. You’ll lose track of time as the pages turn. You’ll stop to revisit a paragraph you’ve just realized is deeply profound. You’ll be jarred and offended a few times, too—but just enough to keep you honest in your thinking. Wow! This story’s potential for good takes my breath away.” -John Kitchen Author of No Road Too Far"

The Honest Atheist starts with a laugh and ends with a bang! Comedy meets apologetics in this hilarious and punchy novel from Thor Ramsey that is unlike anything I’ve read yet. If Bill Maher and Lee Strobel wrote a book together, I imagine it would turn out like The Honest Atheist. Ramsey packs up-to-date arguments for faith in God, His creation of the world, and the atonement of Christ right next to a laugh on just about every page. This is not your typical case for Christ from a guy who is not your typical apologist. It will bolster the faith of believers, challenge the presuppositions of the skeptical, and provide comical food for thought to everyone—give it a read and see for yourself!” -Ernie Bowman Author of Legend of the Wapa
