God (All That Matters) free pdf In this book: 'Mark Vernon writes with sharp insight and a generous understanding of how humans search and create meanings to sustain their lives' - Madeleine Bunting, Guardian. Why doesn't God go away? God: All That Matters, by philosopher Mark Vernon, suggests that there is something odd about the way God is discussed today. It is often as if the divine were being examined in a test tube, in a search for empirical and objective confirmation of his/her existence. Yet, for people of faith, the experience of God is nothing if not subjectively real- they know God, in-so-far as they do, in their lives. Vernon therefore looks to move the argument on from the debates between atheist and religious fundamentalists, to look at how people through time have looked for, experienced, and explained God - in suffering, in nature, in morality, in peak experiences, in goodness, in the future and in love. This accessible and concise book will appeal to both students and general readers, giving a fascinating introduction to a wide range of perspectives on God. The All That Matters series: All That Matters books: All books in the All That Matters series are written by world experts in their subject field.
