Meaning and Mystery offers a challenge to the way Philosophy has traditionally approached the issue of belief in God as a theoretical problem, proposing instead a form of reflection more appropriate to the practical nature of the issue.
  • Makes use of abundant illustrative material, from both literature, such as Les Misérables, Edwin Abott’s Flatland, Yann Martel’s Life of Pi and Leo Tolstoy’s A Confession, and popular culture, such as advertisements, the television series Joan of Arcadia and the film Stranger Than Fiction
  • Uses imaginative scenarios to offer explanations of central concepts
  • Incorporates theories on human thought and behavior in exploring the formation of religious belief
  • Written in a style that is accessible to readers with little background knowledge of philosophy

Keywords: Philosophy of Religion, Philosophy, anthropomorphism, religion, meaning, belief, narrative, religious practice, morality
