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'.

Review: The Way to Happiness

User Review  - Tony - Goodreads

It is highly interesting that a trained Anglican theologian can give up God. "All this is all there is." What a fine sentence. Yet he still sees value in a religious view point on life. Maybe there are implications as to what people ought to be doing in all those churches they go to. Read full review
