I just wanted to draw some attention to my father's new book, God is the Good We Do. Although I haven't spotted it on PaperbackSwap yet, it may come around at some point, and it may be someone's good idea for a wish list or a reminder list. :-)
"For those of us who struggle with some of the contradictions of modern religion, but for whom pure secularism is not a sufficient answer, Benedikt's book clearly articulates possibilities about our lives, our relationships to one another and our relationship to the divine. Traditional religion answers three basic questions that humans have struggled with since the dawn of history - what are the origins of life, how should we live our lives, and what happens to us after we die? Benedikt's book explores the second question, offering an inspired 'operator's manual' for life. At the same time, he leaves the other questions unexplored, preferring to allow the reader to rely on their own religious, secular or scientific explanations."

I hope you guys will at least take a look. I confess I'm not big on books about God or religion, but in the end this book is not exactly about either of those things... and yet, somehow, it really is about exactly those things. It's just... really amazing. You'll have to read a little bit for yourself to see what I mean.
Thanks everyone! :-)
