The World to Come

Bridget Williams Books

The Christian era is at an end: after two thousand years the religious faith that has shaped western civilisation has been found wanting. So argues Lloyd Geering in a controversial examination of society and religion, in which he looks at the reasons for Christianity’s decline and the likely shape of spirituality in a global future.

Geering, a renowned writer and thinker on social and religious issues, warns of endings and potential catastrophes. But he sees grounds for hope in our increasing awareness of our human predicament, claiming that a new global consciousness could provide the spiritual dimension to an evolving international culture.
