About this title

Synopsis:

BOOK SUMMARY

Religions were created by humans from ancient myths. The spirituality, faith and morality that are implicit in religions should have ennobled humans. Instead, throughout history, religion has been plagued by intolerance, persecutions, and wars, that negated the benevolence contained in all religious doctrine. The problems besetting religion arise from fanaticism, lust for power, and dogmatism. These aspects of religion, as well as spirituality and the role of women, are discussed. The means for reforming religion are universal liberal education, religious democratization, improved communication among religions, and a renewal of spirituality.

From the Publisher:

In his enlightening and insightful book, Religion Unplugged, Max Swanson explores various aspects of religion, including faith, spirituality, the afterlife, fanaticism, cults, power, dogma, sex, sin, and the role of women. He describes how fanaticism, rigid dogmatism and the lust for power have led religions to disastrous persecutions and wars. He explains how fanatic, power-hungry zealots are threatening the basic spiritual foundations of religion. Swanson proposes that religion desperately needs reform, through democratization, universal liberal education, improved communication among religions, and spiritual renewal.
