This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

The Good Book is a book of insight, inspiration, wisdom, solace and commentary on the human condition drawn from the great humanist traditions of thought and literature of the world. Its princi#65533;pal concern is how life - the good life - should be lived. Stimulating, thoughtful, rational and rewarding, it is now published in a compact edition.The Good Book is an alternative, non-religious Bible and has been made in just the same way as the Judaeo-Christian Bible was made: by redaction, editing, paraphrasing, interpolation, arrangement and rewriting of texts from the last three thousand years of the great secular traditions. The Bible was made over many years by many hands; hundreds of authors and more than a thousand texts lie behind the fourteen books created by A. C. Grayling, who has distilled their teachings, their insights, their wit, their advice, their human stories, their tragedies, their yearnings, their love, their sorrow and their consolations into one humanist Bible.For a secular age in which many find that religion no longer speaks to them, this is a book of life and practice, focusing the light of great minds of the past on to the perennial challenge of being human.
