DEATH OF THE MYTHIC GOD
The Rise of Evolutionary Spirituality
Jim Marion

THE DEATH OF THE MYTHIC GOD explores the psychological and spiritual roots of the precipitous decline of the Christian church throughout the world. Marion a former monk explains that the mythic worldview upon which the church's beliefs and powers are based is being swiftly dismantled by the findings of biology astronomy psychology and other sciences. Marion asserts the Church's decline has led to a major spiritual crisis over the past decade resulting in both an emptying of churches and a hardening of fundamental religious views-both Christian and Islamic. On a personal level THE DEATH OF THE MYTHIC GOD looks at how this crisis of faith has affected the average churchgoer. Marion contends that despite dwindling church attendance the need and desire for an authentic spiritual experience is at an all-time high leading many to explore spiritual belief and expression on their own without an intermediary. By explaining the various levels of human consciousness and urging people to go directly to God Marion provides this new breed of seeker with a roadmap for navigating the post-religion future. ¨ The follow-up to Marion's provocative first book Putting on the Mind of Christ which sold over 11000 copies ¨ Attributes the recent spate of sexual abuse scandals within the church to this spiritual crisis of faith ¨ Urges spiritual seekers to follow their own path directly to God and offers guideposts for the journey
