Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Brilliant, bad, charming, irascible and totally off the wall, Paul Arden is an original with extraordinary drive and energy, blessed with a creative genius allied to a kind of common sense that just isn't, well, common (Roger Kennedy, Saatchi and Saatchi)

Présentation de l'éditeur

A punchy, humorous, and probing look at the nature of religious belief, by the author of the massively successful Whatever You Think Think the Opposite. In a series of brilliant visual episodes, Paul Arden investigates the questions that have persisted since our earliest days. As ever, he is a master of compression, getting us to scratch our heads as he examines our relationship to the divine.

This is a cute little book, and certainly can be read in about 20 minutes. The printing is excellent, and the large type face is very easy on the eyes. The book tries to target the harried, rushed executive, which Arden himself was once upon a time.

The book is not a denial of God - it is a relaxed confirmation. It is slightly irreverent about Christian sects, and more positive towards Islam, which is in keeping with the current fashion [Mr. Arden even suggests building a mosque at Ground Zero!]. It tries to present the concept and relevance of divinity in a very small bite, and thus loses out on content.

There are also some errors of information, particularly about other religions. For example, 'heathens' are referred in the past tense (p.52). Actually that is not correct. By Christian standards, heathens still exist - all Hindus and Buddhists would easily fall in this category. Similarly, the Islamic practice of five daily prayers is explained as having been designed to get people out of the Sun and into the cool mosque (p.80). Mr. Arden is perhaps not aware that Muslims are expected to pray wherever they are, except on Friday afternoons, when a kind of Mass is celebrated by getting all the Muslims together in the mosque.

All in all, a nice book, with some good ideas. It may help you look at religion in a new light, or it may not. However, don't expect it to give you any deep insights.

Are You Brave Enough Not to Believe? 12 janvier 2010
Par KMG - Publié sur Amazon.com

"God Explained in a Taxi Ride" by Paul Arden is one of his many motivational books published and meant to drive home the solution in as few words as possible. He takes one very heavy topic and explains it in the bluntest of terms.

"God Explained..." is no exception to this rule.

Think about it. Whether you believe in Christ, Allah, Buddha, the Sun God, yourself... this book will answer your questions. Because the long and the short of it is this: God exists in YOU.

Quotations:
"We need a soulmate. We gaze upward to find him."
"It's the unknown that makes life so rich."

Keep things simple. Why talk through a preacher or priest when you can talk to your god whereever and whenever you want to? Why spend a specific amount of time in your church, on a specific day, when you can praise your god anywhere? If you read the Bible (for example) as a text book, it states that god exists within YOU. So... why the necessity to visit a church when you can praise your god in the comfort of your own home? Does going to church make your prayer any more substantial? Does praying to your god (and not someone else's) make your wishes any more worthy?

"Jesus actually existed... his story has been told and retold so many times that it is difficult to separate fact from fiction."
It's like a game of telephone. How does "I want a piece of cheese" turn into "Wanna beseech thee?" at the end of only five people. Imagine a full story told at the end of thousands of years. Won't it change a little?

****"Why does god need you to defend him? It must be because you think you are more powerful than your god."****

"You can only have faith in what you DON'T know. That's what faith IS."

Take this book, read it for its merits and for its suggestions. Like every other book, take from it what you can and try to delve a little deeper beneath the surface.

Relax. Your god wouldn't want you to be so tense.

In as few words Mr Arden has used, I have learned more from him than I have from decades of going to church.

This was a gorgeous book. It's simplicity does not bely the enormity of the topic! It connected to my head, my heart, my body and my soul.

A perfectly reasonable little read for non-zealots 12 mai 2013
Par stark - Publié sur Amazon.com
Funny how extreme some of the reactions are to this book. If you are a fundamentalist who thinks that the religion you were born into just happens to be the only way to look at the world then you'll hate it - just view the one and two star reviews. If you believe in God and don't think he created some of us just to kill and feel superior to the rest then you might enjoy it. Most of the stuff isn't terribly profound if you have thought about these issues before. It's certainly true that lots of folks have been killed in the name of religion despite the fact that the founders of these religions would decry this behavior. Paul Arden is basically saying it's complicated, you're not going to figure everything out, you need to think for yourself and be a decent person. Apparently the lack of self-righteous, my-way-or-the-highway, fire-and-brimstone attitude is reprehensible to some. But to anyone that will get this book that's not going to be a big surprise...

I was so excited when this book finally came out, I love his two others, however I was very disappointed. This book is no were near the level of his other work, I would not recommend it.
