The Unauthorised Bible by J. F. Evans
This volume is the concluding chapter of a larger work, The Unauthorised Bible. It tackles the questions that have always faced all humans: evil, suffering, death and the afterlife, the purpose of existence, justice and mercy, fate and free-will and the nature of God. It also considers the primary issues which determine the theoretical basis of all religious systems: how to be a good person, how to be a good citizen and how do we see our relationship with the divine? Finally it attempts to square the circle between modern understandings of science, in particular molecular and evolutionary biology, behavioural science, astrophysics and quantum mechanics and the religious domain.
