Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Future of Faith (Kindle Edition)
At last a book that makes the distinction between "belief" and "faith" and explains it clearly. A very difficult distinction to translate into languages that do not have two words for the two but like German have only one word "Glaube". This is a very important distinction (made years ago by Martin Buber in his book "Zwei Galubensweisen") and is largely ignored in discussions about religion, since even in English the words "belief" and "faith" are largeyl used interchangeably.
This is a book that puts my own private insights about religion into words, clearly and understandably, and describes the highly gratifying developments currently taking place in "religion", away from legalistic religion (keep the commandmetns and believe these dogmas to be "saved") and towards a religion emphasizing the experiential and the spiritual.
And it is easy and pleasant to read!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A very readable book, 26. Dezember 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
The writing is very enjoyable so that one keeps on reading it, even though I cannot agree that "religion" (viewed as a collective phenomenon) does in fact deliver all the benefits claimed by the author. Ideally, of course, it should. So the book is a good reminder to "religious" people too of what they should be providing! to their memebers!

It is a good, thought-provoking read.
