What have Atheists, Christians and Muslims and all other categories in the human race got in common? Why – despite our shared humanity – do so many of us get involved in clashes about religion? And why do some of us even fight and kill each other? What do you understand by the word ‘God’? Are humans the creatures of God or is ‘God’ the invention of mankind? How can we make sense of ‘God’ in a suffering world? And finally, why do we need to talk and listen to each other.


The author considers these and many other questions posed by the menacing social and political breakdown in our fragile world ‘community’.


“...a very welcome contribution to one of the most overheated and often least understood debates in our culture.” – Dr Rowan Williams


“Refreshingly open, honest and direct. The author knows the difference between mystery and mystification. I would happily recommend this book to my students.” – Rabbi Lionel Blue


“In this lively, sane and vivid book, Rex Andrews casts light on real spirituality and reveals the truth behind the obscurities of dogmatism.” – Jonathan Sale


“The author knows that God is beyond words, but this brief guide clears away much of the fog that surrounds the deity and leaves a fresh space for Faith.” – Roger Bolton
