Summary

From the New York Times best-selling Author.
Can God be revived in a skeptical age? What would it take to give people a spiritual life more powerful than anything in the past? Deepak Chopra tackles these issues with eloquence and insight in this book. He proposes that God lies at the source of human awareness. Therefore, any person can find the God within that transforms everyday life.
God is in trouble. The rise of the militant atheist movement spearheaded by Richard Dawkins signifies, to many, that the deity is an outmoded myth in the modern world. Deepak Chopra passionately disagrees, seeing the present moment as the perfect time for making spirituality what it really should be: reliable knowledge about higher reality. Outlining a path to God that turns unbelief into the first step of awakening, Deepak shows us that a crisis of faith is like the fire we must pass through on the way to power, truth, and love.
”Faith must be saved for everyone’s sake,” he writes. “From faith springs a passion for the eternal, which is even stronger than love. Many of us have lost that passion or have never known it.” In any age, faith is a cry from the heart. God is the higher consciousness that responds to the cry. “By itself, faith can’t deliver God, but it does something more timely: It makes God possible.
For three decades, Deepak Chopra has inspired millions with his profound writing and teaching. With The Future of God, he invites us on a journey of the spirit, providing a practical path to understanding God and our own place in the universe. Now, is a moment of reinvigoration, he argues. Now is moment of renewal. Now is the future.

Critic reviews

"Dr Chopra's work will be talked about for a long time to come.” (Hans Peter Duerr, Scientific Member and Director Emeritus Max Planck Institute for Physics and Astrophysics)
"As Deepak explains, Dawkins’ materialism is the delusion, not God. Eastern spiritualists, Western constructivists and quantum physicists agree - the mind shapes, if not creates, the world." (Stuart Hameroff, M.D., Professor, Anesthesiology and Psychology Director, Center for Consciousness Studies The University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, www.quantumconsciousness.org)
" The Future of God is a brilliant exposition for the need of consciousness-based reality." (Menas C. Kafatos, Fletcher Jones Professor of Computational Physics at Chapman University, and co-author of The Non-local Universe: The New Physics and Matters of the Mind)

Which character – as performed by Deepak Chopra – was your favourite?

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

To me this book is full of great moments. Its very people friendly and does not ram the belief of God in your faith. It just offers an overview that is open to all?

Any additional comments?

Loved this book and will re-listen to it again, as its a lot to take in in one hit. peace

Very heartfelt work

I had long considered Deepak Chopra as bit pretentious. But this book is solid as a scholarly and inspired work. I also recommend watching his pbs video on the same topic. Both clarifies so much about the concept of god. I have started daily meditation practice inspired by this book.

Intriguing perspective of God

I was captivated by the way Deepak so clearly put forward both sides of the divide. Listening to The Future of God, through Audible, allows me to listen while visualizing the concepts presented. This book is a gift to me, my loved ones and my coaching clients. I am now better able to put into words, how my feelings and beliefs about Spirituality keep me positively moving to deeper and deeper levels of being.
