Book: A New Religion by Tim Schumachercategories: Book, Spirituality, Contemporary Affairs, Comparative Religion, Non-Fiction, The Cosmos, Religion
Tim Schumacherabout this book: "A New Religion" is for the young and young at heart. It accepts the fact that ancient superstitions are running amok in the nuclear age and argues that the global community needs to move beyond the dangers that this religious dogma sustains. Our world is presently mired in sectarian warfare.
In the face of this seemingly endless strife, it is wise to create a bigger circle and occupy it. Knowing what we know about the cosmos, earth is a tiny planet in a sea of the immensity of space. It's becoming increasingly difficult to imagine that any god or creator could want adherents to fight over small pieces of planetary real estate. The brutality of the medievel terrorists among us is a terrible thing. It is a dead end.
We should instead be contemplating the universe in all its glory. This book is about those embarking upon the journey to that higher ground. It offers them peace and support. And above all, "A New Religion" provides hope.
