New Book from Dinah Livingstone

“Poetic Tales”

an essay in four chapters

If we regard God or gods and the whole supernatural realm as the rich product of the human imagination, what value can such 'poetic tales' still have for us, once we have discarded the supernatural? The surprising answer is as much as ever. Not only does everyone, atheist or otherwise, need some theology, without which so much of our history and culture remains baffling, but when taken and sifted with what Coleridge called poetic faith, those tales are found to contain treasures of wisdom.

This book offers a way into poetry even for the prosaic or merely puzzled, and a way into theology for atheists and all.
