The Coming Age of Personal Religion
Paul Snider, author
Paul Snider's book, The Coming Age of Personal Religion, is a superb blending of higher thinking and practical living. It links our free will, human spirituality and God's love. While respecting traditionally organized religions, the author explains that the newly emerging era of religion will witness increasing numbers of individual persons reaching out to God personally, without the intervention of a ruling clergy of a formalized religion of authority. Each person is destined to discover that he or she can search for, and find, truth, beauty and goodness -- the riches of the mind and fruits of the soul -- through their own efforts. In other words, Paul Snider believes that we may connect human self-consciousness directly with God-consciousness. He goes on to detail how this may be done and how it may then be socialized with our fellow mortals in spiritual unity, not theological uniformity. The author candidly elaborates on the point that the personal effort to find the Source and Center of the Universe is not easy. It is a challenging, but deeply rewarding, quest for God. This is an exciting work of spiritual literature, expansive cosmically, yet personal, in scope and depth.
