A God That Could be Real: Spirituality, Science, and the Future of Our Planet
A God That Could be Real: Spirituality, Science, and the Future of Our Planet
by Nancy Ellen Abrams
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.99

4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed her talk with Joanna Harcourt-Smith on future primitive, 14 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The title is very enticing. Nancy has a very engaging type personality. I really enjoyed her talk with Joanna Harcourt-Smith on future primitive. The problem with the book is that if you are a Christian much of what she says goes against the grain .When I think of the cosmic self I have immense gratitude which Nancy helps me to appreciate. She uses some colourful phrases such as "milk life for it is worth" She like me loves the idea of emergence but her explanations of it are too convoluted for me but if you want a 2016 ultra modern view of God this is it.. An open mind is required. I wish the book success.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evolutionary mysticism at its best!, 19 Feb. 2016

Bruce is an intellectual heavyweight but he is great at making his ideas easily understandable to the person in the street. I like the way he interprets the New Testament in a modern scientific way. I like the way he implies we are here for the perfection and evolution of love. I like the idea of wholeness animating the universe. Many of his ideas are game changers. Thanks Bruce.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit wordy, 21 May 2015

30% of this book very good especially the section on quantum wholeness so you could risk buying it for the sake of the 30%. But I found 70% too complex for me to get much benefit from.

The Search for Spirituality: Our Global Quest for a Spiritual Life
by Ursula King
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Very readable and enjoyable, 18 May 2015

Very readable with only average intelligence needed. A prior enthusiasm to learn about all the religions and pseudo-religions of the world is needed to get the full benefit of the book. Ursula rises the flag for the females - good for her. Good resource information in the notes at the end.

This review is from: If Darwin Prayed (Kindle Edition)
The nuances of poetry are something I find difficult but Bruce makes poetry come alive so this book requires many reads and much pondering. Much depth and subtlety in this great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars well written, 8 May 2014
This book is well worth buying simply because of its numerous interesting words and phrases eg conviviality,alacrity,bravado, arboreal epiphany, inured and rain intensified from heavy to deluvian.

This is the second book in the peacemaker series set during the second world war. We are all very much pampered in 2014 if we eat three meals a day and dont have to scramble over mountains secretly in the dead of night.
Very gripping story. Amazing courage showm by the leading characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars great read, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These two Australians are hugely courageous adventurers. Secondly the are both great writers with very good geographical descriptions. They make a few philosophical points although i would have appreciated more. Like all short sighted people I would have preferred larger print.
Both tim and Chis made an already hazardous journey more so by using recumbent bikes as opposed to conventional ones. Secondly they shared a tent whereas single occupancy tents would have allowed them more much needed psychological space.
Remarkable that they are still great friends after such an amazing adventure. A truly amazing well written story
