The Great Questions of Life
By (author) Don Cupitt
Great Questions of Life by Don Cupitt
Book DescriptionIn everyday speech we often hear people jokingly mention what they call the 'ultimate questions', the 'big questions', or 'the great questions' of life. In Don Cupitt's judgment, however, these questions are no joking matter. He believes that there is no higher truth than the truth that is built into our everyday speech and that, therefore, these questions should be taken seriously. In The Great Questions of Life, he collects and classifies all the great questions, in the wordings that are most familiar to us, and interprets and answers them. He shows how the decline of the old religion has led to the return of the great questions and explains why they have become important to us in modern times.

Books By Author 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, 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, 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, Paperback (January 2010)» View all books by Don Cupitt
Rewrites the narrative plan for salvation as the story of religion calling us out of nature and gradually making us ourselves.
