    Vancouver Book Club

    Part 1: (Aug 4 2020) Pages: Introduction to Chapter Nine: Logos: The Devine Algorithm

    The Evolution of God

    by Robert Wright

    Synopsis

    In this sweeping narrative that takes us from the Stone Age to the Information Age, Robert Wright unveils an astonishing discovery: there is a hidden pattern that the great monotheistic faiths have followed as they have evolved. Through the prisms of archaeology, theology, and evolutionary psychology, Wright's findings overturn basic assumptions about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and are sure to cause controversy. He explains why spirituality has a role today, and why science, contrary to conventional wisdom, affirms the validity of the religious quest. And this previously unrecognized evolutionary logic points not toward continued religious extremism, but future harmony.

    Nearly a decade in the making, The Evolution of God is a breathtaking re-examination of the past, and a visionary look forward.

    Please suggest books for upcoming months and invite anyone who may be interested.

    Most books are available at the Vancouver Public Library or local book stores or through the BC Humanist Association.
