The God Virus, a provocative best-selling book by eminent psychologist, Dr. Darrel Ray, following its rapid rise on Amazon’s Science and Religion best-seller list, has gone into its second printing and will shortly be available on Kindle.

The book has been greeted with wide-ranging acclaim by atheists, agnostics, and even believers who are courageous enough to test the strength of their beliefs. Dr. Ray has been addressing numerous large and enthusiastic gatherings of humanist and atheist organizations throughout the country. Wherever he goes, his analysis of religion has been praised for its logic and cogency. Dr. Ray not only speaks about his book, but also about an organization that he founded, Recovering from Religion (RR), which is based on the self-help techniques of AA. It is for individuals who were raised religious but now lead lives of secular fulfillment. RR groups now exist in many cities throughout the United States. Those groups have further propelled the success of The God Virus, for its members regard it as their un-bible.

Dr. Ray has worked tirelessly to let people know about the book and how to remove religion from one’s life. He has spoken to tens of thousands of interested people in cities large and small and on podcasts and radio. “It is extremely gratifying that The God Virus is proving so popular that it has gone into a second printing. Or as my assistant noted, ‘the book is enjoying its Second Coming.’” For those who prefer high-tech, they will be able to read the book on Kindle. “The God Virus addresses issues that no other pro or anti religious book has examined. Following my lectures, many people come up to me and tell me how the book has helped them overcome the sense of bondage they had endured to the hackneyed strictures that had been drilled into them in their youths. The book certainly addresses issues that cut to the heart of religions of all kinds, the emotional and psychological consequences to individuals, their families and society. You can read Harris, Dawkins, Hitchens and Dennett, but none of these books tell you how to deal with the religious people in your life or the residual effects of religion in yourself. The God Virus offers common sense ideas for living in a religiously infected world. ”

Dr. Ray is not only a highly regarded psychologist, but also a diligent student of religion. He has brought far-reaching knowledge to the attention of readers who want their questions answered, their world view broadened. He has also reached out to the You Tube community with several acclaimed and ground-breaking videos on religion.

Dr. Ray's book, explains the psychology of religion and its practical effects on people. For example: How does guilt play into religious infection? Why is sexual control so important to so many religions? What causes the anxiety and neuroticism around death and dying? How does religion inject itself into so many areas of life, culture and politics? This second generation book takes the reader into the realm of the personal and emotional mechanisms that affect anyone who lives in a culture steeped in religion. He uses examples that anyone can relate to and gives real world guidance in how to deal with and respond to people who are religious among our families, friends and coworkers. This book intelligently and forthrightly addresses issues that play a large role in virtually every aspect of our society. Every intelligent and concerned citizen who cares about where our world is heading should read The God Virus.
