More Than Allegory : On Religious Myth, Truth and Belief Paperback / softback
This book is a three-part journey into the rabbit hole we call the nature of reality.
Its ultimate destination is a plausible, living validation of transcendence.
Each of its three parts is like a turn of a spiral, exploring recurring ideas through the prisms of religious myth, truth and belief, respectively.
With each turn, the book seeks to convey a more nuanced and complete understanding of the many facets of transcendence.
Part I puts forward the controversial notion that many religious myths are actually true; and not just allegorically so.
Part II argues that our own inner storytelling plays a surprising role in creating the seeming concreteness of things and the tangibility of history.
Part III suggests, in the form of a myth, how deeply ingrained belief systems create the world we live in.
The three themes, myth, truth and belief, flow into and interpenetrate each other throughout the book.
