Many theologians have concluded that supernatural causes are not needed to explain the rise of our great religious traditions, that religion, like the rest of culture, is a purely human creation. Many people take this as a reason for giving up the serious practice of religion. But Don Cupitt argues that it opens up fascinating unexplored territory. In "The Way to Happiness, he gives an account of the liberating power of religion and the intense happiness that it can engender. This novel sort of apologetics invites readers to abandon religious authority and dogma, and 'come of age'.
