Overview

God Without Religion: Questioning Centuries of Accepted Truths by Sankara Saranam

In a groundbreaking approach to today’s tough spiritual and social dilemmas, God Without Religion offers an intelligent and compassionate bridge from dogmatic belief systems to progressive spirituality. The son of self-exiled Iraqi Jews, Sankara Saranam shows why organized religion has long been the cause of humanity’s worst wars and most acute suffering--then guides us beyond our divisive history into more expansive perceptions capable of creating a unified, peaceful future. Through a series of penetrating inquiries and practices, readers are invited to examine their beliefs, turn inward, and develop a direct understanding of God.
