I saw the Harris presentation on Book Notes today, and while I liked most of what he said just as I did with the reading of his book, I was disappointed to hear him say that he didn't/doesn't expect his book to influence any change on the problem of faith. I'm not sure if he was being honest about that, for why would one write a book on this subject and set up a website to invite discussion if he/she didn't expect or hope to have some influence?
I mean it was very significant that Harris was invited to speak in a synagogue (sp.?), for it is perfect example of where social action could take place around this question.
At the same time, his book should also be a source for more writings—books, articles, and websites. This is the way the change takes place. Though the change may be as slow as evolution, it only happens through constant dialogue and social action.
