Emptiness and Brightness by Don Cupitt

Book Description

If new Platos or Buddhas were to appear today, what would they say about the nature of reality, the human condition and the way to happiness?The period 800-200 b.c.e. the so-called Axial Age was the time when Old World pioneering philosophers and religious teachers laid down the basic ideas by which people have been living ever since. Today those great religious and cultural traditions are coming to an end. We are entering a new Axial Age.Don Cupitt observes that this second Axial Age is one of communication. Everything is accessible to everyone, and everyone can make a contribution. The world is therefore made and remade not by the individual genius, but by a change in the general consensus. Cupitt describes the emergent religion and philosophy of the new Axial Period in clear and accessible language. He predicts that, while it may seem very strange at first, we will learn to love it

Ethics in the Last Days of Humanity by Don Cupitt Ethics in the Last Days of Humanity, Paperback (August 2015)

Don Cupitt's concern is not so much the science of global warming as it is the absence of a serious ethical and religious response to it. When all existing "reality" breaks down, ethics can no longer be based on nature or religious law. Cupitt advocates for an alternative inspired by the historical Jesus.

Creative Faith by Don Cupitt Creative Faith, Paperback (December 2014)

Creative Faith argues that Christians need to fill the void left behind by heaven-obsessed theology with a new theology of moral striving. No longer should they aim to conserve the self, preparing for eternity: they must simply expend it, by living generously.

Last Testament by Don Cupitt Last Testament, Paperback (June 2012)

Considers the traditional Christian ideas of the hereafter against modern beliefs, arguing that we need not the New Testament message but a Last Testament for the Last World that we live in.

Great New Story by Don Cupitt Great New Story, Paperback (January 2010)

Rewrites the narrative plan for salvation as the story of religion calling us out of nature and gradually making us ourselves.
