About the Author:

A.C. Grayling is Master of the New College of the Humanities, London, and a Supernumerary Fellow of St Anne's College, Oxford. Until 2011 he was Professor of Philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London. He believes that philosophy should take an active, useful role in society. He is the author of many books, including The Meaning of Things and Towards the Light: The Story of the Struggles for Liberty in the Modern West, and has been a regular contributor to The Times, Financial Times, Observer, Independent on Sunday, Economist, Literary Review, New Statesman and Prospect. He has been a Booker Prize judge and is a frequent and popular contributor to radio and television programmes, including Newsnight, Today, In Our Time, Start the Week and CNN news.

Review:

Undeniably thought-provoking * Christopher Hart, Sunday Times * Truly ... a good book, full of sage counsel, wise advice and comfort for the sorrowing * Richard Holloway, Observer * There is an immense depth of human wisdom on display here, and five minutes with any passage will have you contemplating all day * Independent on Sunday * There are many sentences, thoughts and sentiments in The Good Book that are illuminating, life-enhancing and revelatory on a personal level * Glasgow Herald * I am glad he put this book together and it will occupy a valuable place in my library as a source for inspiration and wisdom. **** * Terry Waite, Sunday Express * Grayling is ... a skilled writer of prose ... most impressively [he] demonstrates mastery of Greek history and culture in Histories and Acts * Rabbi Ariel Abel, Jewish News * Professor Grayling himself neatly exemplifies the values of calm rationality which are at the heart of Stoicism, and which influenced early Christian thought * Church Times *
