What would be the best way to get a book on atheism published?

For starters, I do not have a degree in english, nor in anything yet. I am 30 years old and an atheist. I am writing a book that, if all goes according to plan, will demonstrate what it is like to be an atheist in todays society as well as comparing and contrasting being religious and not religious. My problem is, I have no idea where or how I can get this published, if at all, once it is completed. Has anyone here had a book published? How hard is it to find an agent to turn your script in to the publishers for you? My wife wrote an excellent childrens book and tried for 3 years to get it published, always hearing back that "We do not accept unsolicited manuscripts" from the big publishing houses. No agents were willing to take on her case without charging an insane fee up front. We have looked in the literary guide for both agents and publishing houses. I do not want to fall into this same situation, any advice ahead of time would be well taken. Thank you.

If you're desperate, why not publish it on the web and get sympathetic sites to sponsor you?

Publishing a book is a huge undertaking. Not everyone, even those who write "bestsellers" make it. Have you thought of trying the various atheist organizations to help you out? Perhaps some have their own publishing co. It would be worth looking into. I listed a couple below, but you can always do a web search to find... More

hm, I wish I could help, and I'm sorry your getting all this crap from other people here, don't take it to hard. I'm a Christian but I don't think it's good to critisize people like that, so, good luck! I hope things work out for you!

You can find a vanity press, pay to have it published yourself and then get people to sell it for you. Local bookstores would probably be the best place for this. Maybe you can send it to some reviewers to get their opinion.

There are some companies which help people self-publish. I don't know more about them than they exist, they cost something & that first-time authors use them to get their first book into print. Good Luck! ;-)

Any agents charging you up front are not good or legit agents. The Writer's Market is an excellent resource; however, I think a lot of it is geared towards fiction writers. I'd look at publishing houses that have already put out a number of books on atheism, humanism, etc. and try those.
