Morality, as secularists know, does not require a deity. Blind faith, as atheists know, often leads to hatred, violence and war. Taking myth and scripture as literal accounts of history, as scientists know, borders on the nonsensical.

If religion isMoreMorality, as secularists know, does not require a deity. Blind faith, as atheists know, often leads to hatred, violence and war. Taking myth and scripture as literal accounts of history, as scientists know, borders on the nonsensical.

If religion is to be credible for modern, educated, sophisticated people, there has to be more. And there is. In LOVE, WISDOM, AND GOD, Dr. Andrew Cort demonstrates that in their deepest and most important sense, these are internal, psychological stories.

Through allegory and symbol they weave the tale of a soul that has descended into material life and must now do the necessary work to find its way home again. This inner journey, the basis for all Sacred Quest legends, has been called Persephones Return to Olympus, The Return to the Promised Land, The Quest for the Holy Grail, and many other names.

In other words, Mythology and Scripture can be read as manuals for spiritual initiation. When this is understood: The underlying unity of all our traditions is revealed. The atheist objection that the stories are irrational becomes irrelevant. The justification for religious hatred and war disappears.
