Mark Gerard Craigabout this book: Whatever we say about the word God remains an idea about God. What the word God points to may barely resemble the myriad images and distorted imaginings of religion. God, as a human idea, may be more akin to images presented by science. "The Whole Elephant" invites the reader to go on a journey across the intellectual terrain of science, religion, philosophy and psychology to honestly uncover what the concept of God conceals. A very thorough and worthwhile read for the one disenchanted by the stock answers of religion and atheism. A recommended read for the deep thinker.
• "A brilliant analysis bringing science and spirituality together" (Amazon Customer Review).
Perhaps it is not so much that people do not believe in God. Perhaps it is more that people do not believe in the representations of God popularised by Religion. Perhaps atheism conceals an image of God hitherto misunderstood and too quickly dismissed by those threatened with alternative representations. Buckle up Dorothy, the road may be bumpy.
