A nice book with compelling information and philosophical arguments
on 31 December 2017
As somebody who was brought up as a Catholic I have a fundamental faith that God exists. However, in today's society and working in an engineering job with many friends who are anti-religion I am commonly coming across vitriol about people with faith and I have realised that I need some more proof for myself and some better answers if/when my kids ask me what my belief is based upon. I had also read the brilliant books Sapiens and Homo Deus recently which really was the first brilliant book I have read where the author has pinned his staunch beliefs in a non-spiritual human to the wall. These books rocked me and also made me feel very sad. I needed to balance myself by reading something from the other side of the argument. This book does not have all the answers and as some of the very lengthy reviews explain, some of the arguments are not backed up by much substance. However, it helped me and I found some of the arguments compelling. I recommend reading it to anybody who is looking and thinking about spirituality and I really think that more people should be thinking about that...
