Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling Author.
Can God be revived in a skeptical age? What would it take to give people a spiritual life more powerful than anything in the past? Deepak Chopra tackles these issues with eloquence and insight in this book. He proposes that God lies at the source of human awareness. Therefore, any person can find the God within that transforms everyday life.
God is in trouble. The rise of the militant atheist movement spearheaded by Richard Dawkins signifies, to many, that the deity is an outmoded myth in the modern world. Deepak Chopra passionately disagrees, seeing the present moment as the perfect time for making spirituality what it really should be: reliable knowledge about higher reality. Outlining a path to God that turns unbelief into the first step of awakening, Deepak shows us that a crisis of faith is like the fire we must pass through on the way to power, truth, and love.
”Faith must be saved for everyone’s sake,” he writes. “From faith springs a passion for the eternal, which is even stronger than love. Many of us have lost that passion or have never known it.” In any age, faith is a cry from the heart. God is the higher consciousness that responds to the cry. “By itself, faith can’t deliver God, but it does something more timely: It makes God possible.
For three decades, Deepak Chopra has inspired millions with his profound writing and teaching. With The Future of God, he invites us on a journey of the spirit, providing a practical path to understanding God and our own place in the universe. Now, is a moment of reinvigoration, he argues. Now is moment of renewal. Now is the future.

What the Critics Say

"Dr Chopra's work will be talked about for a long time to come.” (Hans Peter Duerr, Scientific Member and Director Emeritus Max Planck Institute for Physics and Astrophysics)
"As Deepak explains, Dawkins’ materialism is the delusion, not God. Eastern spiritualists, Western constructivists and quantum physicists agree - the mind shapes, if not creates, the world." (Stuart Hameroff, M.D., Professor, Anesthesiology and Psychology Director, Center for Consciousness Studies The University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, www.quantumconsciousness.org)
"The Future of God is a brilliant exposition for the need of consciousness-based reality." (Menas C. Kafatos, Fletcher Jones Professor of Computational Physics at Chapman University, and co-author of The Non-local Universe: The New Physics and Matters of the Mind)

A book to read rather than listen to

I loved this book; the reading of it, the concepts presented and the conviction, reason and hope behind them. My one and only reservation is that when being presented with so many new (to me) ideas that required understanding and re-thinking of old beliefs I found the reading a little fast. There is so much to think about in this book that I listened in small bites, often backtracked and stopped to consider what I'd heard. I will read this book again and again. I would have, in retrospect, preferred to read this book in its printed form and will very likely buy a copy. I understood that the worksheets were included with this audible reading but I could not find them and that would be a further reason for having the printed version. For all that though, I loved listening to Chopra's voice - it is resonant, soothing, powerful, convincing and very good listening.
