Morality, as secularists know, does not require a deity. Blind faith, as atheists know, often leads to hatred, violence and war. Taking myth and scripture as literal accounts of history, as scientists know, borders on the nonsensical. If religion is to be credible for modern, educated, sophisticated people, there has to be more. And there is. In LOVE, WISDOM, AND GOD, Dr....more

I've always been told not to judge a book by its cover and that you could tell a lot about a book by its title and picture. Well in this case only 1/2 that statement is true. I normally shy away from any book that is a reference to religion as I tend to be very unique in my beliefs.

However, I did this review anyway and I am SO glad that I did. I love to learn. I love history. And I love to see the cultures around the world. This book has all of that. Starting with Greece and the Gods in the 6th...more

Thought provoking

I had no idea what to expect from this book. My friend recommended it to me saying that it might be something that I’d enjoy.

When I first started reading it, I planned on setting it down after the first chapter or two. But before I knew it, I was reading well into the night.

Andrew presents a very interesting blend of many different philosophy’s and religious doctrine that I haven’t seen before in his explanation of the soul. Quite interesting.

“But we as a culture have lost the deep intuitive understanding that Creation exists on many levels. We have succumbed to the scientific viewpoint. Nothing characterizes ‘the modern world’ more completely than the loss of faith in Transcendence, our arrogant lack of any genuine appreciation for levels of reality above our little everyday affairs. The deepest wounds to the human soul have been caused by our lack of appreciation of levels. By shutting the door on transcendence, we have cut off any light from that world that might have illuminated this one, leaving us in darkness,leaving us with nothing but a dead world where scientists are merely performing an autopsy.” 3 likes
