Abstract

In Tomorrow's God Lloyd Geering offers the distillation of a lifetime's reading and reflection on religious questions. He argues that the world we live in is largely a product of our own making, and that we supply its meaning. Thus 'God', a central symbol of meaning, is entirely a human creation. He traces the collective 'drift towards meaning' that gave rise to the various religions, and explores the reasons they are now in decline. Geering argues that, for our own survival, we must consciously create new meaning for our lives. We must focus - and urgently - on caring for the earth. But new systems of meaning can only evolve out of our cultural past, and Geering shows how the Christian tradition may lead towards a new world of meaning.
