The Good Book
A Humanist BibleBook - 2011
"... Grayling has distilled the work of hundreds of authors and more than one thousand texts using the same techniques ... that produced the holy books of the Judeo-Christian and Islamic religions. Their wit and advice, human stories, tragedies and yearnings, love and consolations are shaped into fourteen constituent parts that recall the Bible in structure: Genesis, Wisdom, Parables, Concord, Lamentations, Consolations, Sages, Songs, Histories, Proverbs, The Lawgiver, Acts, Epistles, and The Good ... For a secular age in which many find that religion no longer speaks to them, 'The Good Book' is a literary tour de force ..."--P.  of cover.
