Tomorrow's God

Tomorrow's God

How We Create Our Worlds

The post-Christian era offers a mixed blessing, as people find greater personal freedom while facing a future without the certainty of traditional beliefs and practices.

In Tomorrow’s God, renowned writer and commentator Lloyd Geering argues that the world we live in is largely a product of our own making. Thus ‘God’, a central symbol of meaning, is entirely a human creation. Geering urges us to consciously create new meaning for our lives in a work that is a distillation of a lifetime’s reading and reflection on religious and social questions.
