Can God be revived in a skeptical age? What would it take to give people a spiritual life more powerful than anything in the past? Deepak Chopra tackles these issues with eloquence and insight in this book. He proposes that God lies at the source of human awareness. Therefore, any person can find the God within that transforms everyday life.
God is in trouble. The rise of the militant atheist movement spearheaded by Richard Dawkins signifies, to many, that the deity is an outmoded myth in the modern world. Deepak Chopra passionately disagrees, seeing the present moment as the perfect time for making spirituality what it really should be: reliable knowledge about higher reality. Outlining a path to God that turns unbelief into the first step of awakening, Deepak shows us that a crisis of faith is like the fire we must pass through on the way to power, truth, and love.
“Faith must be saved for everyone’s sake,” he writes. “From faith springs a passion for the eternal, which is even stronger than love. Many of us have lost that passion or have never known it.” In any age, faith is a cry from the heart. God is the higher consciousness that responds to the cry. “By itself, faith can’t deliver God, but it does something more timely: It makes God possible.”
For three decades, Deepak Chopra has inspired millions with his profound writing and teaching. With The Future of God, he invites us on a journey of the spirit, providing a practical path to understanding God and our own place in the universe. Now, is a moment of reinvigoration, he argues. Now is moment of renewal. Now is the future.
“The Future of God is a brilliant exposition for the need of consciousness-based reality. It is consistent with the worldview of quantum physics which showed the importance of the mind and is a fitting answer to the claims of militant atheists whose science is based on outdated views now known to not be true and which became obsolete almost a century ago.” — Menas C. Kafatos, Fletcher Jones Professor of Computational Physics at Chapman University, and co-author of The Non-local Universe: The New Physics and Matters of the Mind
“A magnificent and masterfully argued presentation of why randomness can never explain the great mystery of life on earth. This wonderfully accessible book is a must read for anyone who, much like Einstein and other pioneers of the new physics did, experiences a feeling of utter humility when contemplating the grandeur of the cosmos.” — P. Murali Doraiswamy, Professor of Psychiatry and Member, Duke Institute for Brain Sciences
