CFI Canada is hosting a book release of Carolyn Hyppolite’s Still Small Voices: The Testimony of a Born-Again Atheist.

The most difficult tribulation in one’s life can be letting go of God. For Carolyn Hyppolite the struggle with God’s whims has ended.

The most difficult tribulation in one’s life can be letting go of God. For Carolyn Hyppolite the struggle with God’s whims has ended.

In her words:

“The very existence of churches with their grandiose architecture and their hortatory Sunday sermons are in fact evidence of the inactivity of God in the world. If God’s love was real, it would be apparent. There would be no need for preachers, apologists or much of organized religion. It is because God’s absence is so grossly obvious that such monumental efforts must be mounted to persuade ourselves and others that despite his absence, he is present, despite his silence, he is speaking, despite his impotence, he is omnipotent, and despite his indifference, he loves. “­

Her journey spans many years, takes place in many churches, has many flavours of faith, wishful thinking, rebellion, regret and acceptance. From the God that did not want to open the door after she forgot the key inside her apartment, to Jesus, the celestial lover, the theological and devotional voices that followed Carolyn from her young years to her adult life have lead her to understand that reason and a life without God can inspire more awe and real love for life and the world.

Admission is free! You are invited to attend the talk, and stay for a discussion with fellow CFI members and other skeptics at CFI Canada’s new headquarters at 55 Eglinton Ave. East, Suite #307, Toronto, ON M4P 1G8

  1. Congratulations to Carolyn! I was lucky enough to receive a copy and will be writing my impressions about it as soon as I finish the book. So far, I am impressed with its emotion and authenticity! She may not remain a “small” voice in our community after people have read this book.

    I’ll put in a good word about the event!

  2. “The very existence of churches with their grandiose architecture…”

    Very well expressed.

    All this infrastructure does point to the desire for crowd influence and management.

    The entire history of Catholicism was constructed with monuments, cathedrals, schools, hospitals, prisons, artwork and graveyards. Millions of man-hours of minimum wages.

    In spite of this millennial effort, only the sounds of silence.
