There are many non-religious people that still seek spirituality
There are many books that open the way to find God
These are some books that I have read that one who is disillusioned with religion may find enlightening:
The Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith
Minister Timothy Keller has become world famous for his approach in dealing with post-modernism religion and millenials that still wish to connect but are uncomfortable with organized religion. In this book, the Prodigal God, we are taken on a journey of self discovery as the Parable that we all know and love finds new meaning and life.
We already know that the younger son is “lost” because of sinfulness. Yet, now we learn about the alienation from God of the Elder son that has “kept all the commandments from his youth” and yet he lacks a connection with God.
Keller suggests the parable is more aptly named “The parable of the lost sons”
The Sin of Certainty:
Why God Desires Our Trust More Than Our “Correct” Beliefs
A desire to “know” or to be “certain” have often been extolled as the virtues of a religious congregation. It engenders an “us versus them” approach to life and a world view that is so narrow that many are excluded. Peter Enns helps us understand, in this very engaging piece, that God desires our trust and confidence and not our “correct beliefs”
The Bible Tells Me So:
Why Defending Scripture Has Made Us Unable to Read It
Help overcome your rigid frameworks of literal scripture reading, to get to a deeper level of understanding and begin a transcendent journey of spiritual transformation that is more authentic and real.
My Life with the Saints
By James Martin: A Jesuit Priest Minister
Beautiful story telling of the Saints that have effected Mr. Martin’s ministry and brought him closer to God. A transformative reading for believes and non-believers alike as we feel closer to the Saints.
The Idolatry of God:
Breaking Our Addiction to Certainty and Satisfaction
A nice challenging look into the rigid views of God that we hold onto. A message that God is not an idol of consumption that we can control through our perceived obedience. A call to lay down our certainties and take a place with Jesus.
Understanding the Ancient World’s Greatest Poem
Re-engage with how you once understood the passage of Job and scripture in general. Helping us move from a literal historical translation to an allegory that has deeper meaning and asks the right questions.
