Spiritual Atheism Book Excerpt:

Over the last 160 years, a great dilemma has been hatching out of Western spiritual consciousness. In our modern existence, we have lost faith in the traditional routes by which human beings have come to experience the Divine, and an acceptance of oneself as having a place in the order of the universe. In Spiritual Atheism, Steve Antinoff argues that the dilemma burning within the West has been given its most fundamental expression by Kirilov in Dostoyevsky's The Possessed: "God is necessary, and so must exist . . . Yet I know that he doesn't exist, and can't exist . . . But don't you understand that a man with two such ideas cannot go on living?" According to Antinoff, spiritual atheism begins with three realizations: that our experience of ourselves and our world leaves us ultimately dissatisfied, that our dissatisfaction is intolerable and so must be broken through, and that there is no God. Continuing where such writers as Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris left off, Antinoff's unique and prescient take on deity and spirituality makes this book a critical contribution to the understanding of the quest for salvation and enlightenment in a world full of chaos and need.

Believing in Dawkins Book Excerpt:

Dawkin's militant atheism is well known; his profound faith less well known In this book, atheist philosopher Eric Steinhart explores the spiritual dimensions of Richard Dawkins’ books, which are shown to encompass: · the meaning and purpose of life · an appreciation of Platonic beauty and truth · a deep belief in the rationality of the universe · an aversion to both scientism and nihilism As an atheist, Dawkins strives to develop a scientific alternative to theism, and while he declares that science is not a religion, he also proclaims it to be a spiritual enterprise. His books are filled with fragmentary sketches of this ‘spiritual atheism’, resembling a great unfinished cathedral. This book systematises and completes Dawkins’ arguments and reveals their deep roots in Stoicism and Platonism. Expanding on Dawkins’ ideas, Steinhart shows how atheists can develop powerful ethical principles, compelling systems of symbols and images, and meaningful personal and social practices. Believing in Dawkins is a rigorous and potent entreaty for the use of science and reason to support spiritually rich and optimistic ways of thinking and living.

The Road between Us The Elder and the Atheist Two Spiritual Journeys Book Excerpt:

Tom and Jason met over twenty years ago under circumstances that should have severed any chance they would develop any kind of a personal relationship, let alone a close friendship. Yet their paths continued to cross, and over time, the answer to why this happened would be made very clear to both of them and hopefully become a lesson for many others as well. Jason believed in science. He thought scholarship and the human capacity for learning and reason could provide every answer about life and the human condition; however, there was a tiny ember of belief he dismissed many years earlier that always remained... Tom believed in God, to what extent he wasn’t even sure. Jason grew up in a very religious family. Tom hardly went to church at all but believes Jesus is God’s Son and died to make salvation available to all that would receive the gift He offers, but he always struggled with the orthodoxy taught by religion and tradition... Jason became a business owner and the founder and president of the Mid-Michigan Atheist and Humanist Group. Tom became a chaplain and an elder (pastor) after more than twenty-two years of military service. This book is about the unlikely friendship that changed the course of their lives and the worldviews of both Jason and Tom, a story of two people with completely different trajectories for their lives that converge to teach all of us that we don’t have to be of like minds, come from the same backgrounds, or even share the same values to not just get along but to be close friends. This book illustrates the value of thoughtful listening and mutual respect and how, when put into practice, these attributes make it possible to learn something about ourselves, what we believe, and why we believe it. Share this journey with Jason and Tom with an open heart and mind, and chances are, you will discover something about yourself along the way...

Mass Observers Making Meaning Book Excerpt:

What do people believe about death and the afterlife? How do they negotiate the relationship between science and religion? How do they understand apparently paranormal events? What do they make of sensations of awe, wonder or exceptional moments of sudden enlightenment? The volunteer mass observers responded to such questions with a freshness, openness and honesty which compels attention. Using this rich material, Mass Observers Making Meaning captures the extraordinarily diverse landscape of belief and disbelief to be found in Britain in the late 20th-century, at a time when Christianity was in steep decline, alternative spiritualities were flourishing and atheism was growing. Divided as they were about the ultimate nature of reality, the mass observers were united in their readiness to puzzle about life's larger questions. Listening empathetically to their accounts, James Hinton – himself a convinced atheist – seeks to bring divergent ways of finding meaning in human life into dialogue with one another, and argues that we can move beyond the cacophony of conflicting beliefs to an understanding of our common need and ability to seek meaning in our lives.

Flirting with Faith Book Excerpt:

As a thirty-seven-year-old, highly skeptical, deeply rational woman, Joan had it all: loving family, extravagant home, a high-profile career, even personal contentment. So Joan was more surprised than anyone when she was relieved in an instant from the luxury of spiritual doubt and compelled to realign her life around practices of faith--about which she was a novice. With an unexplainable desire to pursue whatever God had for her at whatever cost was called for, Joan left her high-salary profession, sold her home and all her furniture (with her husband’s support), and started life from a blank slate. Finally realizing that she had been flirting with faith since she was a young teen, Joan fell in love with the God who had been pursuing her. Joan candidly shares the story of her radical life change as she moved from atheist, to agnostic in addiction recovery, to the unexpected moment when she was “struck” Christian. As Joan lets go of control and convention, her skepticism is gradually replaced with a realization that embracing her new faith with radical abandon led to a far more mysterious and countercultural lifestyle than she’d ever imagined.

The Book of Atheist Spirituality Book Excerpt:

Can we do without religion? Can we have ethics without God? Is there such thing as 'atheistic spirituality'? In this powerful book, the internationally bestselling author André Comte-Sponville presents a philosophical exploration of atheism - and reaches startling conclusions. Atheists, Comte-Sponville argues, are no less interested in a spiritual life than religious believers. But by allowing the concept of spirituality to become intertwined with religion and dogma, humanity has lost touch with the nature of a true spiritual existence. Using rigorous, reasoned arguments and clear, concise, and often humorous prose Comte-Sponville draws on both Eastern and Western philosophical traditions to propose the atheistic alternative to religion, based on the human need to connect to each other and to the universe. In doing so, he offers a convincing treatise on a new form of spiritual life.

The Actualization of Self Transcendence Book Excerpt:

Sadly, western civilization has seemingly lost its sense of Christian identity and heritage. In recent decades, humanity has become so indoctrinated by the atheistic paradigm that our matrix is controlled by corporate greed and competition rather than cooperation and compassion. While reflecting on a world that is ever changing, Patrick Mooney shares essays that explore the effect of atheism on a variety of topics that include sexuality, the most binary aspect of humanity that is love, the courage of conviction, endowments and the elite as it relates to education, the reality of death, an inner-city Dublin schoolmistress, and much more. Throughout his writings, Mooney reminds us that although the modern world has brought us to a moral impasse, it is possible to adopt the spirituality that Christ preached, embrace our destiny to be spiritual, and refine our higher selves to search for and find meaning and divine purpose in our lives. The Actualization of Self-Transcendence is a collection of personal essays that shares a priest’s candid reflections on the effects of the atheistic paradigm on the modern world.
