Living in Godless Times: Tales of Spiritual Travellers
Open a newspaper at random and you will read news of God’s funeral.
With this opening statement, Alison Leonard launches her absorbing collection of interviews, exploring paths to a more spiritual life as practiced by a group of modern, independently-minded people. Drawn from a variety of spiritual and religious backgrounds, each provides a personal insight into their search for deeper meaning through personal experience, whilst facing the challenge of a seemingly Godless modern culture.
