Rescuing God From Religion

In this slim volume author Muriel Seltman points out the sceptics should be able to "design their own God, free of religion."

She points out that, throughout the history of the human race, God or Gods have played a key role.

From her position as what she calls a "nontheist" she has written a book for those people who are wavering in their religious beliefs in a "creator-God" as she puts it.

They might feel a requirement for security, both of an intellectual and/or an emotional nature that can arise from the belief in a loving, personal God.

It might be hard, she argues, for individuals in these circumstances to question their faith and to, ultimately, reject their religion.

The purpose of the book is to encourage such sceptics to build their own idea of a God which can provide comfort and consolation but in a way that negates what she describes as "the burden of religious dogma."

It's an interesting book which costs £9.99 and is published by Matador.
