One day in July 1997 Don Cupitt was gazing at the view from his window and thinking about Heidegger. Suddenly he was struck by a very brief but violent religious experience. He wrote down a note about it on the spot, and now in retrospective analysis develops from it a typically postmodern vision of the world and the human condition - which, surprisingly, turns out to be a secular version of the doctrine of the Trinity. This book helps to explain the paradox that postmodernity, despite being often aggressively nihilistic, superficial and post-Christian, yet remains deeply theological. It deserves to become a classic of modern spirituality. The Revelation of Being is a companion to The Religion of Being. Don Cupitt is a Life Fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
