Ashland, OR (PRWEB) December 17, 2006
"The Gospel of Jesus and Mary" offers a unique fictional perspective on an alternative world where people gradually created an atheistic utopia by courageously and energetically following the empirically sound teachings of Jesus. Inspired by three universal truths found in the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, Mark Collins creates an alternative world where happiness-driven human moral and social evolution gently displaces the divine from center stage.
To highlight flaws in popular thought, Collins develops a coherent perspective from among major philosophical, religious and scientific thinkers, including Plato, Buddha, Jesus, Darwin and Einstein. His Gospel points out how human discomfort with the demanding moral teachings of religious leaders like Jesus lead to misunderstandings and to overly stressful relations between Christians, Jews and Muslims. Collins' scientific background adds weight to this allegory, making it a thought provoking read for those questioning the state of the world today and the answers provided by modern religious and political leaders.
