When humans first started to think about God times were very tough, life was a bitter struggle and naturally people hoped and prayed for a super being to help them, comfort them. The dominant religions of today reflected that attitude, made God in the image of the most powerful man of those days, the king, master or Emperor. This super being is our savior, will save us from having to face a tough, difficult life. If we pray hard, this super being will give us eternal childhood; life in a protected bubble.
That has been the narrative of the past and sadly, still remains the narrative of the present. It is time for a paradigm change—time for the strong to write a new narrative about Faith and God. Time to stop asking God for this and that and start saying,“What can I do for God?”

This book is very biased towards reincarnation. When you compare two religions you need to have an accurate understanding about what you are comparing. To say that those who believe in heaven are looking for handouts, foolish, lazy, takers and a myriad of other negative things is just wrong. True Christianity involves giving, selflessness, caring and taking action. Reincarnation believers are described in this book as heros, caring, givers, wise and living a real life. Doing a true comparison, the writer needs an unbiased opinion and to speak honestly and openly about both sides. That is not the case in this book. I'm glad I got it as a free book in exchange for an honest review or i would have been disappointed to have spent money on it.
