The Future of God: Personal Adventures in Spirituality with Thirteen of Today's Eminent Thinkers

Samantha Trenoweth, Author Millennium Books (Au) $14.95 (224p) ISBN 978-1-86429-023-3
In fascinating and thought-provoking interviews, Trenoweth probes the minds of some of the top religious and spiritual movers and shakers of the 20th century. Physicist Paul Davies defines God as a being whose ""nature is expressed in the laws of physics and who enters the universe through those laws."" Ina May Gaskin, a pioneer in the midwifery and natural childbirth movement, talks about women's spirituality being interwoven with their sexuality and fertility. Among others interviewed are Bishop Desmond Tutu, Matthew Fox, Rabbi Harold Kushner, the Dalai Lama and Floyd Red Crow Westerman. There are two qualities that make the interviews so refreshing: the variety of the personalities interviewed, and Trenoweth's honest and considered response to the interviews. Finally, throughout her conversations with these thinkers, Trenoweth shares her own ideas about--and experience of--spirituality. (Sept.)
