Marshall Brain is best known as the founder of the website HowStuffWorks.com. In 2007, Discovery Communications bought the site for a whopping $250 million.
He has appeared on Oprah, National Geographic Channel, and CNN, and written several books.
His latest one may be the most controversial one yet. It’s called How “God” Works: A Logical Inquiry on Faith.
We spoke with Marshall about how his book is different from those by the New Atheists, why he’s risking his reputation by deconstructing God, and how he’ll know if the book is successful.
