Last year, Chris Johnson released a multimedia book about atheists called A Better Life: 100 Atheists Speak Out on Joy & Meaning in a World Without God. The book was years in the making and came about after one of the most successful Kickstarters for an art book in that site’s history. It was incredible to be a part of the project and I think the final product was just stellar.
In addition to taking pictures of atheists, Chris also shot a lot of video, and he has just released a feature length documentary that compiles interview clips from some of the people in the book. I had a chance to watch the film the other day and it was beautiful — not just how it looked, but what the atheists had to say. I wish I could’ve heard them when I first became an atheists. This is like an extended “It Gets Better” video, featuring Matt Dillahunty, Julia Sweeney, Cara Santa Maria, and several others.
If not for yourself, consider getting it for an atheist family member. It’s the culmination of years of work by Johnson — and once you see the products, you’ll understand why.
