I'm working on a book right now which is set in a world torn by political and religous strife. A nation (let's call it A) is on a holy crusade, and the one country in the region powerful enough to stop it (let's call it B) is torn between revolutionaries of all sides and points of view. B's provinces are divided and weak, and the story revolves around the intertwining missions of several people (some with parallel goals, other with opposing goals) and their attempts to sway the nation to aid one side or the other- the theists or the apostates. I want to present both sides strongly, but as an atheist, I have difficulty getting inside the head of a very religious person. To answer this post, you should probably go to a place of worship at least once a week and have a strong belief in god. What I want to know is this: do you apply god to everything, or do you mostly only think about him in church? Do you catch yourself praying throughout the day? Do you communicate to him rarely, or quite often? When you overhear people talking negatively about the god you worship, how do you react? Are you inclined to trust people who believe in the same god more readily than those who do not? How often do you read your holy scripture? Feel free to share any details that you please. This book isn't intended as an attack on religion, but rather on the people who make all religion look bad by murdering in its name. My characters will be a mix of both apostates and theists.
