AN AMAZON REVIEWER HAS WRITTEN "Outstanding, Controversial and Inspirational'
Religion has brought the world to the brink of meltdown. That Old Devil Called God Again shows how defenceless we are from the invading power of religious indoctrination, to which Jesus fell victim. From childhood, like unprotected computers, the predatory viruses of other peoples beliefs and dogmas invade us until we emerge as adults unaware of how we have been infected. The Rwandan genocide, Omagh, 9/11, suicide bombings, Westgate and the Syrian carnage join the indictments against 'God'. Religion stands charged with contaminating our cultural development and impeding our moral aspirations. This book gives us a chance to carry out a thorough virus scan, to discover who we really are, be given the chance to think anew and choose our beliefs. The toxic nature of religious teaching is exposed and our basic assumptions and ideas are challenged with fresh and radical thinking that empowers and liberates us to become more fully human. While laying siege to religion, this book yet presents a passionate and positive call for a full and creative engagement with life and a vibrant spirituality.

THE SECOND EDITION IS NOW AVAILABLE
The long awaited new edition of the popular book that issues a serious warning about the dangers of becoming involved in a church. The first edition triggered a social revolution, resulting in home baptisms and blessings, equal marriage celebrated in any location, Communion for all, via the internet or by post, personal funerals, independent ministers and the freedom to question traditional beliefs. At a time when religion and religious extremism pose a major threat to us all, it provides a refreshing and exciting approach to faith and life. Above all it champions love as being the most important quality of all.ont-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 22.4px; orphans: auto; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 1; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; display: inline !important; float: none; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">Reflections from a pilgrim mind on a journey to hell, through the wastelands and confusions, to the heaven beyond.

Sergeant Peter Henry Blaskey, later named Blake, was a Lancaster bomber pilot and was shot down in 1942. He was interrogated and imprisoned in Camp 344, Stalag 8b, Lamsdorf. he remained a prisoner of war for over two years. He was then force marched over 600 miles across Europe by the Germans, during which he was mock executed as a punishment after searching for food. He endured sub zero temperatures and witnessed the deaths of hundreds of prisoners who starved or froze to death. He kept a diary for the first 10 months of his captivity that he carried with him on the long march and that is now published for the first time. Just before he died, Peter joined a pilgrimage, organised by the Royal British Legion, of former prisoners returning to Lamsdorf for the first time. You can watch a 30 minute documentary on YouTube about the journey - 'Archbishop Jonathan Blake - The Heroes Return'.
