“Ridiculously readable.”— Ali Rizvi, author of The Atheist Muslim

“This book is a miracle and a blessing terrific read! Thank God Kate!”
Alexandra Petri, author of Alexandra Petri’s US History: Important American Documents (I Made Up) | Read More Here >

“An engaging, enjoyable, and very timely book. As more and more Americans shed their religion, it is essential that the voices and values of atheists are well articulated and better understood. Cohen’s work is a warm, wonderful addition on this front.”
 Phil Zuckerman, author of Living the Secular Life | Read More Here >

“Cohen’s arguments, embedded in stories of a rich and complex life, filled with neighbors, friends, family, and fellow citizens, arrive as a wonderful and welcome invitation to join in the project of building a good life without god—a life oriented above all toward honesty, creativity, community, and joy.”
— Courtney Bender, author of The New Metaphysicals | Read More Here >

“While many popular books about atheism are written with a goal of deconverting readers, Kate Cohen takes a welcome detour in We of Little Faith. By sharing her own religious journey, Kate shows us that atheism doesn’t come from a place of rebellion, but rather a desire to embrace radical honesty. We of Little Faith is a delightful journey through both the “why” and “how” of atheism. This is a wonderful book.

“Not all of us have PhDs in evolutionary biology or know all the philosophical arguments for or against God. Many of us just believe what we believe (or not), and should be able to talk about it. If this sounds familiar, and you’re looking for a friend to help you navigate these conversations with intelligence, compassion, and humor, you have to read this book.”
— Ali Rizvi, author of The Atheist Muslim | Read More Here >

We of Little Faith is a must-read for every American, whether atheist or Zoroastrian or somewhere in between. Cohen’s witty, compassionate take on America’s religious culture is atheism as it should be, as it truly is: fulfilled, happy, and true to one’s self. This is the quotidian atheism your friends and family may be too timid to discuss, but which Cohen illuminates with absorbing eloquence. If you think about religion, you owe it to yourself to read this book.”
