In 2011, debut author Denny Hundiak conducted a social experiment attempting to debunk the unspoken understanding that discussing religion between civilized people should be considered impolite, or even taboo.

After conducting interviews with twelve very different people from twelve very different social backgrounds, educational backgrounds, and faith practices, the humble author arranged the contents of those interviews into one in-depth and daring conversation about the nature of God, Religion, and Ethical Behavior. Both irreverently funny and mildly offensive, The R Word: Discussing the Worlds Most Controversial Topic serves as a window into the mindset of modern faith practitioners. From the foul-mouthed Rock Star Atheist, and the Encyclopedic Buddhist Masters Candidate, to the unapologetically funny Agnostic Filmmaker, and the Evangelical Christian Blogger.

Every reader should be able to find at least one voice to represent their own views within this book. And at least one voice with whom they completely disagree. But thats the point, isnt it? All too often within our world, we allow our differences to separate us. In the case of Religion, its considered more acceptable to tell someone that they are going to go to Hell, than to question your own beliefs in search of a compromise. Its more common place to fight about Religion, or Faith, or God, than it is to discuss these things. When did compassion become relegated to only those who believe what you believe?

When did personal discovery and personal growth get thrown out of the window? When the Hell did asking questions become a bad thing? Its time to join the conversation. The R Word allows readers to step inside of the new movement which discusses not only what makes us different, but what makes us the same. Instantly accessible and understandable in its explanations, this book should appeal to theists and non-theists alike. Written to reflect an on-going conversation between the twelve participants, The R Word both asks and answers some of lifes hardest questions.

All while encouraging the reader to start asking those questions themselves. To friends. To family. To anyone youre comfortable with. Because human history, the progression of our shared species, and our understanding of the world around us did not come about by remaining silent. Progress demands Curiosity. And Curiosity leads to Questioning. So start questioning. And ... JOIN THE CONVERSATION!
