|Summary, etc.:||"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"--|

The popular and prolific spiritual writer offers an engaging discussion describing the development from unbelief to faith to knowledge. He takes Richard Dawkins' arguments for atheism as a way into his belief of knowledge that has God contained in it, but Chopra does not confine himself to a debate. Instead, he is generous with Dawkins' formulations and uses them as scaffolding for his own counteranalyses. Science is no enemy to Chopra. He offers possible ways forward in spirituality at a time when science is both explaining life forces and provoking fearfulness on the parts of those who see it as antonymous to God in writing that is balanced, explicitly evenhanded, and accessible. Readers interested in exploring spiritual living without eschewing secular knowledge will find Chopra a knowledgeable guide through a sometimes thorny path. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
