A Theology for the Rest of Us

A Theology for the Rest of Us is an eye opening book that will help you learn more about religion and various religious practices. The author discusses in depth the roots of theology, different faiths and beliefs, and how different religions differ from, or are similar to, each other. I loved reading this book because the discussions are objective and the author does not force the reader to subscribe to his beliefs. What Arthur Yavelberg does is write about different topics and lets the reader choose the path they want to follow themselves. A Theology for the Rest of Us is a great book for readers that always yearn to learn new information about cultures, societies and religion.

Readers will love this book because it answers a lot of questions that bothers believers. Spirituality is widely discussed in the book and the author goes the extra mile to write about how it affects believers of different religions and why it is crucial. In this book you will read about western Christianity vs. Eastern Christianity, compare notes and get to learn of the impact each had. The reader is also educated about concepts and practices in Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism among other religions. I really enjoyed reading about the different religions. By the end of the reading, I realized that in a way, we are all the same despite having slightly different values as humans.

The author also addresses the complexity of certain things in faith, and gives the reader a guide on how to follow your instinct. The author also answers intricate questions about God and his persona. I appreciate the discussions on free will, reincarnation, who to believe, the identity of the divine and why we need to be good. The text in the aforementioned topics will enable you to understand humans and their characters, and make you reflect on self and how you have been living.

A Theology for the Rest of Us is not just a religious book. You will get history lessons from the book and also learn more about humanity. Every reader is guaranteed lifelong lessons once they are done reading the book.
