Agnostic

A widely admired writer on religion celebrates agnosticism as the most vibrant engaging and ultimately the most honest stance toward the mysteries of existence One in four Americans reject any affiliation with organized religion and nearly half of those under thirty describe themselves as “spiritual but not religious” But as the airwaves resound with the haranguing of preachers and pundits who speaks for the millions who find no joy in A lovely meditation on appreciating ambiguity

Curiosity and passion the vital role of mystery in a deceptively information rich world; to ask what we mean by the search for meaning; to invoke the humbling yet elating perspective of infinity; to challenge received ideas about death; and to reconsider what “the soul” might be Inspired and inspiring Agnostic recasts the uestion of belief not as a problem to be solved but as an invitation to an ongoing open ended adventure of the mind Nice to read anything on agnosticism at all and Lesley is a lovely writer I d like something but this is fine

    Very satisfactory readThis is exactly the type of book I love It was like a conversation with a friend about ideas and concepts that aren’t part of every day banter A very timely read as out culture struggles with the concept of religions role in society and the rise of the “spiritual non religious”
