Jeff Rasley’s newest book, Godless, sounds a little misleading. Rather than expounding on the benefits of not believing in God at all, he delves into the theory that if we can put aside our prejudices regarding religion, doctrines, dogma, theology, and politics, we can and should be able to look at each other as human beings sharing this incredible planet. With fresh, insightful thoughts on what it means to be a human being and spiritual person vs a particular religious or political animal, he reminds us of the importance of seeing each other for who we are rather than what we are or what we believe. Using down-to-earth language and open dialogue, Rasley encourages people to become more attuned to the human experience we all share. This is a must-read book for anyone seeking answers to the God question, or who just want a different perspective to some age-old questions surrounding religion.
