A Heretic's Guide to Eternity
Author: Spencer Burke
Author: Barry Taylor
Distinguishing between religion and spirituality, Burke offers what he calls a new way of looking at God,
one centered on the idea of grace. He emphasizes a God who is looking to save the world, not a God
who seems more intent on condemning certain practices . . . . For Burke, God is to be questioned, not
simply obeyed. His challenging thesis will appeal to many people today who have given up on organized
religion but still seek some connection to spirituality.
