PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Case for God: What Religion Really Means The enormous popularity of books by Richard Dawkins Christopher Hitchens Sam Harris and others shows that despite the religious revival that is under way in many parts of the world b there is widespread confusion about the nature of religious truth b For the first time in history a significantly large number of people want nothing to do with God In the past people went to great lengths to experience a sacred reality that they called God Brahman Nirvana or Dao indeed religion could be said to be i the i distinguishing characteristic of i homo sapiens i But now militant atheists preach a gospel of godlessness with the zeal of Christian missionaries in the age of faith and find an eager audience What has happened .
Karen Armstrong argues that historically atheism has rarely been a denial of the sacred itself but has nearly always rejected a particular conception of God During the modern period the Christians of the West developed a theology that was radically different from that of the pre modern age Tracing the history of faith from the Palaeolithic Age to the present b Armstrong shows that until recently there was no warfare between science and religion b But science has changed the conversation The meaning of words such as belief faith and mystery has been entirely altered so that atheists and theists alike now think and speak about God and indeed reason itself in a way that our ancestors would have found astonishing .
Why has the modern God become incredible b Has God a future in this age of aggressive scientific rationalism b Karen Armstrong suggests that if we draw creatively on the insights of the past we can build a faith that speaks to the needs of our troubled and dangerously polarized world
