Can God be revived in a skeptical age? What would it take to give people a spiritual life more powerful than anything in the past? Deepak Chopra tackles these issues with eloquence and insight in this book. He proposes that God lies at the source of human awareness. Therefore, any person can find the God within that transforms everyday life.
God is in trouble. The rise of the militant atheist movement spearheaded by Richard Dawkins signifies, to many, that the deity is an outmoded myth in the modern world. Deepak Chopra passionately disagrees, seeing the present moment as the perfect time for making spirituality what it really should be: reliable knowledge about higher reality. Outlining a path to God that turns unbelief into the first step of awakening, Deepak shows us that a crisis of faith is like the fire we must pass through on the way to power, truth, and love.
-Faith must be saved for everyone's sake, - he writes. -From faith springs a passion for the eternal, which is even stronger than love. Many of us have lost that passion or have never known it.- In any age, faith is a cry from the heart. God is the higher consciousness that responds to the cry. -By itself, faith can't deliver God, but it does something more timely: It makes God possible.-
For three decades, Deepak Chopra has inspired millions with his profound writing and teaching. With The Future of God, he invites us on a journey of the spirit, providing a practical path to understanding God and our own place in the universe. Now, is a moment of reinvigoration, he argues. Now is moment of renewal. Now is the future.

“Faith is in trouble,” bestselling spirituality author Chopra writes to open his newest, and one source of that trouble is “bullying behavior that seeks to crush the early shoots of personal spirituality” from prominent atheists such as Richard Dawkins. Chopra therefore writes “to make spirituality credible for modern people.” He says that atheists and religious fundamentalists have monopolized public discussion of spirituality and religion, but that they argue from a flawed understanding of God. For example, Dawkins’s atheism “positions itself as rational but cannot explain the source of rationality,” he writes. Chopra asserts that scientists, like believers, take truths on faith, but scientists are in thrall to scientific materialism and fail to see this. He recommends a shift in both scientific and human awareness that allows for materialism as well as invisible worlds, and will allow people to reach God. Chopra’s first-person viewpoint and clear, colloquial language help persuade readers to entertain the possibilities he raises. He won’t reach atheists, but spiritually inclined agnostics will find the ideas provocative. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (Nov.)
