Editorial Reviews


I loved reading this book - rather meditatively because it is detailed and rich - and letting its hopeful message sink in. --Louisa Gilder, author of The Age of Entanglement: When Quantum Physics Was Reborn

"This learned and inspirational book rescues philosophy from the mathematicians, sex from the hedonists, religion from empty sanctimony, and science from barren materialism. A must read." --George Gilder, noted social commentator and author of The Israel Test and Wealth and Poverty

From the Publisher

Morality, as secularists know, does not require a deity. Blind faith, as atheists know, often leads to hatred, violence and war. Taking myth and scripture as literal accounts of history, as scientists know, borders on the nonsensical. If religion is to be credible for modern, educated, sophisticated people, there has to be more. And there is! In LOVE, WISDOM, AND GOD, Dr. Andrew Cort demonstrates that the marvelous stories of Greek Mythology, as well as Christian, Jewish, and Islamic Scripture, are internal, psychological stories. The inner journey of spiritual awakening that they describe is the basis for all the great 'Sacred Quest' legends. In other words, Cort shows us that myth and scripture can be read as practical manuals for spiritual initiation! When this is understood: (1) The underlying unity of all our traditions is revealed. (2) The atheist objection that the stories are irrational becomes irrelevant (even if true!)(3) The justification for religious hatred and war disappears.
