Solution to "The God Wars" Found in Award-Winning Book
RETURN TO MEANING: THE AMERICAN PSYCHE IN SEARCH OF ITS SOUL redefines religious meaning and its importance for a Scientific Age. (http://www.andrewcort.com)
"Renaissance man” Andrew Cort (science and mathematics teacher, attorney, and doctor of chiropractic), has written an inspirational and scholarly book that “rescues philosophy from the mathematicians, sex from the hedonists, religion from empty sanctimony, and science from barren materialism,” says George Gilder, noted social commentator.
If there is a God, and God is all-powerful and good, why would God create such a painful and difficult world? Does religion have a credible answer? Morality, as secularists know, does not require a deity. Blind faith, as atheists know, often leads to hatred and violence. Taking scriptural stories as literal accounts of history, as scientists know, borders on the nonsensical. There has to be more.
And there is. “Return to Meaning: The American Psyche in Search of its Soul”, a 2008 award-winning Finalist with USA Book News, demonstrates that when myth and scripture are interpreted in a symbolic, psychological way – rather than merely as history – they all have the same underlying purpose: the enlightenment of the soul. “When this shared noble purpose is understood, a sense of sacred meaning is restored to our lives and there is no further need for religious hatred and bigotry.” writes Rev. Janet Mckinstry. The atheist observation that ‘these stories are not rational’ becomes irrelevant, and the enmity between science and religion is defused.
This groundbreaking study of allegory and symbol reveals how Biblical stories weave the tale of a soul that has descended into life and must now work its way ‘home’ again. This inner journey, the basis for all ’Sacred Quest’ legends, has been called “The Quest for the Holy Grail“, ”The Return to the Promised Land", and many other names. Everything that happens – the wars, the joys, the obstacles that are overcome - must all occur within oneself.
In the final chapters, Cort discusses the terrible cost of ignoring or misunderstanding the inner meaning of our western tradition. But after covering the gamut of science, economics, pop culture, politics, family, and education, he confirms the possibility of restoring a genuine sense of meaning and purpose to our lives.
