I recently approached Hemant Mehta over at The Friendly Atheist with a few ideas for how I might get Baptism for the Dead to appear on his blog. (He's got quite a wide audience, in case you are a non-believer who lives under a rock.) I didn't really expect much of a response, since bloggers and other media personalities are still largely in the "so what; not impressed" phase when dealing with self-published authors. But dang, Hemant was just so friendly. I guess that should not surprise me. He suggested posting an excerpt, and by Jingo, there it is.
Thank you, Hemant, and welcome and hello to new readers of my own humble blog, who found it via the link at The Friendly Atheist. I hope you stick around; I hope you enjoy Baptism for the Dead.
