Product Details


“This is a small book that packs a big wallop. Sam Keen looks at the growing sense of an absent God, which haunts so many people today, and comes through with a vibrant and plausible response. He takes us back to the most elemental human emotions - gratitude, trust, wonder, joy – and demonstrates how they can become genuine bearers of the sacred. Without an ounce of naiveté, he opens a wide door for future possibilities.”
—Harvey Cox, Hollis Research Professor of Divinity, Harvard University and author of The Future of Faith
“In this lucid and powerful book Sam Keen shows how discarding conventional religion may open us to discover the sacred–which he finds in loving the beauty of the world and passionate commitment to social justice.”
—Elaine Pagels, Harrington Spear Paine Professor of Religion at Princeton University and the author of six books, including The Gnostic Gospels and Beyond Belief
