After reading the book and listening to the audio CD I finally found the video for this awesome piece!

Great stuff!!

Letting Go of God is a humorous monologue by Julia Sweeney chronicling her search for God. She begins in the Catholic church, the religion her family raised her in, and takes a Bible study class. What she learns there leads her to new questions, and in search for answers she explores meditation, Buddhism and New Age gurus, then describes what she learned from the sciences and from sharpening her critical thinking skills. She discovers that to accept the truth leads to surprising revelations. She concludes by sharing how this effects her family.

H. Erectus, I agree, this is "Great stuff!!"  I rented this video last year and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I think this is the perfect video to show religious people.  Julia really doesn't bash religion, which is important in this case because doing so would turn theists away.  Instead, she takes us on a very personal journey as she tries to find ways to understand religion and to keep it as part of her life, only to discover that her heartfelt and honest desire to be religious ultimately leads to atheism.  And throughout her story she keeps you laughing.  

Thanks - good video to post.
