River Out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life is a book by Richard Dawkins detailing elements of evolution. It was written in 1995 and was illustrated by his then wife, the Second Romana Lalla Ward. It is a fairly quick read, with subtle notes of British humour thrown in to keep the reader up all night. River makes few new assertions, deferring to evidence from biological studies and experiments to make its points and refute antiquated notions, related through poetic elegance.

Religion was a powerful influence on my life from childhood. Without it I did not believe that I could truly be happy. When I was young I did not question its truthfulness even though as a young adult I did try to break away from its embrace. I became a willing victim of its emotional blackmail and the subsequent damage to my self esteem. At some point motivated by a love for truth I just wanted to know the depths and history of not only my own indoctrination but other view points. This desire to learn became my salvation and it was a traumatic and painful journey that all questioning Adventists and fundamental Christians will relate to.

Flash_back
My husband was raised SDA, I was not. Like LouAnne and many others, he questioned their beliefs. There is nothing wrong with having questions and searching for answers. Which, is what LouAnne, my husband and many others people had the courage to do. Some will question and return to the "fold", some will not. Each individual has to make up their own mind and do what they feel is right for themselves.

Some negative things have been written about this book. I encourage you to remember a couple of things when you read this.

1. As the reader you do not have to agree with LouAnne. This is the story of HER journey.

2. She had the courage to ask questions. So many people never question anything and live their entire life in BLIND ACCEPTANCE.

That being said I am giving this book 5 stars. I know it took courage to publish this.

We humans have a need to belong… to family, to a group, to society. We want to be a part of something where we feel good about ourselves. One of the places we find a fulfillment for that need is in religion. We also want to be right, to know that we have made good decisions in situations that matter. But when religion is combined with indoctrinations that tell its members they are part of a special group, an elite group that few belong to and that you are now one of the chosen few, it can become a drug. To separate yourself from a group like this can be painful… to realize all your time, emotions, fervent adherence and devotion were based on lies, and that you chose unwisely. In Road Out of Eden, author LouAnne White tells of her journey out of radical Christianity. Struggles within, trying to find herself after a life of being told to deny and ignore self, being rejected by family members she still loved, all these and more make a journey like this, one that can be both painful and exciting. If you have ever questioned something you were told to accept without thinking, this is a book you will need to read. Road Out of Eden is a story about a journey from darkness into light, from falsehood into truth… a journey of discovering the excitement of feeling freedom of thought for the first time!

LouAnne is obviously not a professional writer but rather a real person who had a real life long experience with a controlling fundamentalist cult type entity. This is what I like about her style and this is what I appreciate about her sharing her journey. The quotes are as important as the book itself as any "former" knows because die hard members of the cult require "proof" from a doubter even though they offer no proof for their own claims. I give the book 5 stars because LouAnne not only had the balls to pursue intellectual honesty in spite of ridicule from friends and family but also documented it to share with the world.

This is a very interesting book written by a former Seventh Day Adventist woman who went from garden variety believer to extremist cult-follower to atheist. I really bought this book as a 2009 xmas gift for my boss who was raised 7DA but has since stopped attending the church. In the retelling of her difficult journey toward atheism Ms. White discusses the scholarship of those boilerplate mythological narratives common to all of the various godmen through the centuries. It's a concise and well-written personal memoir that takes you through her heartfelt, and heart-breaking, self-realizations. Highly recommended.

As a former Adventist of the same type as LouAnne White, I am thrilled with her story. I see myself in her story. Being able to relate to her journey, seeing my own journey in her words, is nothing short of gratifying. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is wanting to understand Adventism from an objective point of view, or for any former Adventist who has struggled with their religious experience. Thank you, LouAnne, for sharing your story with us!

Yes... White's journey is moving and interesting. And there is certainly value in that. But the book is poorly written and relies on heavily quoted/noted material from other sources. So overall, the book is insubstantial and unreliable apart from the parts that describe the personal journey of White.

i don't know about 7DA religion or any other, but any person that turns from any religious to being a atheis is just simply because they had no foundation on what they believe to beging with. This is a nonsustancial story and if that is the cause to get you to get out of your church, you have more issuess than this gils to beging with..... I would not recommend this book to anybody, the way i see it is that there is a God in heaven wheter you believe it or not, but if there ''was'nt'' at leass i lived a good, honest life trying to do what is right, however if there is a God ( which i know there is ) I would hate to have to give him account one day, face to face without having Jesus interceding in my behalf...... sorry that this book was ever written and that there is actual people who have turned from church because of this..... too sad
Does anyone really care about a vapid broad's journey from shallow, gullible Christian cultist to shallow, gullible atheist cultist? Sorry, rhetorical question. There are lots of good books on religion out there. This isn't one of them.
