About the Author

John Hick is the author of numerous books, many of which have become classics in their field. He is currently a Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Research in Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Birmingham.


Noted theologian Hick believes that humans are living in such a highly technological "Western" culture that we have accepted an exclusively humanistic/scientific account of our existence and ignored the importance of the "fifth dimension"Äour spirituality and its influences upon our lives. To this end, Hick's long, rambling book, borrowing liberally and heavily from all world religions, considers our spiritual nature and its importance to our well-being. Deeply, intelligently, and passionately, he explores the meaning of life as stated by different faiths, the nature and validity of religious experiences, and the necessary influence of the spiritual over the physical. His general premise leaves little room for argument, though, which makes for a less engaging book. He is preaching to the converted, giving them arguments to use against those who raise the scientific over the religious. Yet the book does a good job of reiterating its major theme and can be read for enjoyment by those interested in spirituality. Marginally recommended for all libraries.ÄGlenn Masuchika, Chaminade Univ. of Honolulu Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
