The Book of Morality is a biblical book for contemporary times. It tells of a man’s efforts to teach a message of Ethical Monotheism – God exists, and God’s primary expectation of... More > human beings is righteous conduct. People of different religions and philosophical perspectives confront the messenger at all turns. His dialogues with these interlocutors address the gamut of theological, religious and moral issues. The Book squarely addresses the vitriolic arguments propounded by the so-called "New Atheists" (Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, etc.), but its moderate, open-minded approach contrasts starkly with their rigid polemics. The book also challenges the religious forces that tend to undermine Ethical Monotheism in the three major monotheistic faiths. The horror of 9/11 looms large in its pages, as do the atrocities of the 20th century. The Book of Morality offers new ideas and insights on questions that inform how we conduct ourselves and who we want to be.< Less

Christianity : Its Evidences, Its Origin, Its Morality, Its History (Illustrated) By Annie Besant

The origin of all religions, and the ignorance which is the root of the God-idea, having been dealt with in Part I. of this Text-Book, it now becomes our duty to investigate the evidences of the... More > origin and of the growth of Christianity, to examine its morality and its dogmas, to study the history of its supposed founder, to trace out its symbols and its ceremonies; in fine, to show cause for its utter rejection by the Freethinker. The foundation stone of Christianity, laid in Paradise by the Creation and Fall of Man 6,000 years ago, has already been destroyed in the first section of this work; and we may at once, therefore, proceed to Christianity itself. The history of the origin of the creed is naturally the first point to deal with, and this may be divided into two parts: 1. The evidences afforded by profane history as to its origin and early growth. 2. Its story as told by itself in its own documents.< Less
