9780473249069: A Theory of Us: Philosophy, God, and the Meaning of Life

Do our lives have a spiritual meaning? Are they for anything? According to the world’s two largest religions—Christianity and Islam—the meaning of life is to believe in god, to worship him, and to be obedient to his revelation. Doing this is said to be very important, for it will determine whether we are greatly rewarded or punished when we die. Urging that something far more beautiful than what these religions have imagined is more likely to be true, Timothy Rowe argues in a clear and engaging way for a strikingly different conception of life. Life, he suggests, is not an opportunity for the worship of a deity, but a crucible for our development. We have undertaken to live in order that we might better understand important truths about conscious existence, and the experiences of our lives provide us with insights toward that. Blending philosophy together with spirituality, this book sets out a new way of looking at ourselves—a new way of understanding why we are all here—a theory of us.

Product Description:

Do our lives have a spiritual meaning? Are they for anything? According to the world’s two largest religions—Christianity and Islam—the meaning of life is to believe in god, to worship him, and to be obedient to his revelation. Doing this is said to be very important, for it will determine whether we are eternally rewarded or punished when we die. Urging that something far more beautiful is more likely to be true, Timothy Rowe argues in a clear and engaging way for a strikingly different conception of life. Our lives, he suggests, are not intended for the worship of a deity, but to help us understand important truths about conscious existence. In bringing those insights before us, life enables us to do something of tremendous spiritual value: to grow and develop who we are. Blending philosophy together with spirituality, this book presents a vibrant new way of looking at ourselves and the meaning behind our lives—a theory of us.

Product Description:

Do our lives have any spiritual meaning or purpose? That is, are they for anything? According to the world’s two largest religions—Christianity and Islam—the goal of our lives is to believe in god with all our hearts, to worship him, and to be obedient to his revelation. Success with this is said to be extremely important, for it will determine whether we are greatly rewarded or punished when we die. Criticizing views like this as grounded upon completely false assumptions about god, Timothy Rowe argues in a clear and engaging way for a strikingly different understanding of life. Urging that something far more beautiful than what religion has imagined may well be true, this book sets out a new way of looking at ourselves—a new way of spiritually understanding why we’re all here together in this thing called life—a theory of us.
