James A. Lindsay holds degrees in physics and mathematics, with a doctorate in the latter. His previous books include Dot, Dot, Dot: Infinity Plus God Equals Folly and Everybody Is Wrong about God.
"James Lindsay and I are united by a deep commitment to live well right now. Love is a chief concern in that endeavor. We are divided over the answers to the big questions of life and our understandings of ultimately reality. Where there is no dispute is that Lindsay is one of the best writers I've read, bar none." Rick Henderson, Draper Campus Pastor, South Mountain Community Church, Utah" "Everyone we love will die and be forgotten forever, including us. Lindsay argues we can love deeper and live better once we accept this fact. Christians often say their faith leads them to love and life, but Lindsay shows another way: by accepting the truth about death. This is a very important message that should be heeded by everyone!" John W. Loftus, author, Why I Became an Atheist: A Former Preacher Rejects Christianity" "Life in Light of Death is a magnificent little book about the inevitable end to our sojourns on spaceship Earth. James is a nimble writer who does a marvelous job tackling a subject that s inherently difficult to discuss. The book is eloquent, thoughtful, and a genuine pleasure to read I highly recommend it!" Phil Torres, author, The End: What Science and Religion Tell Us About the Apocalypse; founding Director, X-Risks Institute" "What is the purpose of life? It isn't Jesus, Muhammad, Yahweh, or any other religious figure, self-help guru, or grand cosmic scheme to be found in the next life. As James Lindsay explains in his remarkably cogent and highly readable exposition on life and death, the meaning of life is to live, and the way to know how to live is vouchsafed to you by virtue of living. How? Read this insightful book to arrive at your own answer." Michael Shermer, Publisher, Skeptic magazine; columnist, Scientific American; author, The Moral Arc, The Science of Good and Evil and How We Believe"
