Over the past decade, Don Cupitt has attempted to reinvent religious thought because, he says, "It has become obvious that not one of the major religious traditions can survive in its present form." He points out that there has been a general shift from organized religion to a new spirituality. In this transient scene we each have a brief part to play, we each need to find a lifestyle through which we can become whole and learn to do our own thing in our own way. Through ardent world-love, Cupitt believes we can work out our salvation and, at the same time, make life more valuable for those who will succeed us.
