But then there is part two that was very compelling for me. A whole new understanding of god and religion that is not based on blind faith but on direct experience. His explanation of god as a verb was brilliant. I've been seeking religion but was uncomfortable with that notion because I only understood religion as it had been presented to me and as described in part one. Now I can comfortably be religious and believe in god in a whole new light without dogma, faith, donations, intermediaries or a lot of other trappings.
This is a wonderful, easy to comprehend and inspiring book.
Ian equates the religious experience with strong emotional experiences, and at the same time connects it to the eternal. Quite an audacious juxtaposition!
Most important. Ian keeps your interest as he leads you through the maze of entailments that make up the notion of "God."
Its a good read!
