But rather than a dry, theological treatise, Savage provides something more akin to an ancient mystery text. Drawing on Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, and other spiritual sources as well as autobiographical material and highlights from his radio show, Savage shares a series of glimpses of God he has experienced over the whole of his life, before and after his groundbreaking radio career.
Moving childhood stories, his dinner with an atheist and a Buddhist, an interview with a Jewish gangster, and Savage's reflections on selected passages from ancient scriptures are just a few of the eclectic group of experiences and insights Savage shares in what is easily the most unique book on spirituality in decades. From his days as a boy growing up in New York City to many years searching for healing plants in the South Seas to his current incarnation as one of the most popular talk radio hosts in the world, Savage has been haunted by glimpses of the divine and struggled to find their meaning.
Rather than trite, orthodox answers, God, Faith, and Reason presents the listener with one man's perceptions and consideration of the daily presence of God in the world around us and how the search to find God is the finding itself.

Agree with some but not all of it
Towards the end Michael talks about the duality of man. I agree there is a battle between the flesh and the spiritual side of man (spiritual side only being obtained after rebirth). I believe what he's talking about here is sanctification. We are sanctified( made holy) by the spirit and not by our own efforts. We can not be fully sanctified in this world but only be totally holy in the next life. We must surrender ourselves totally to the Lord and ask for the help we need (because it's impossible to do it by ourselves, we are flesh by nature and the flesh does not crave sanctification, it's against it's very nature ). The lord said he'd provide a helper (The Holy Spirit ) and we must be lead by the Holy Spirit in our walk through this life. Michael said we must harness the power of the animal spirit but I think it must be killed off in our walk of sanctification and we will never be totally free until the next life. When he talks about not acting on immoral thoughts it is God who gives us strength to resist ( the natural choice for the flesh would be to act on these thoughts ). There is only one way and that is through faith in our lord Jesus Christ and total surrender to him not relying on our own strength. I apologise if I have misinterpreted the last part of the book.

Michael needs to narrate his own books
I loved the book and would buy his other books but I won't because he IS the voice and it's only obvious his listeners would want to hear his words from him. The narrator was great and did an excellent job but it's a no brainer here.. we want to hear Michael when audible listeners read his books!!

G-d never left us; we left G-d
Great book by Michael Savage. I’ve been a listener of his for over 15 years and like many of his fans, consider him a kind of uncle. This book accounts Savages search for G-d as many of us do. My favorite part of the book are the biblical quotes and his explanation for why we can’t “see” G-d, which I thought was a genius observation.
Also, I listened to the Audiobook version and feel I missed out on the physical book. I would have liked to save some of the biblical quotes so I may go ahead and buy the book as well. The narrator did a very nice job and it was a very hard job considering that fans expect Savages distinct voice...but he did a good job nonetheless. Thank you Dr (Uncle) Savage for sharing all of your wisdom. I think like many of your fans I enjoy when you talk about subjects beyond politics. Keep up the great work!
