    Mix of New Age views, pseudo-physiology and quasi-philosophy.

    I have read 3 of Don Cupitt's books, 1. The Meaning of the West: An Apologia for Secular Christianity Christianity, 2. Ethics in the last days of humanity, 3. Taking leave of God. Its clear this man has never really been a Born Again Believer. He is really an atheist masquerading as a Christian. After buying his books, I felt cheated, the books are full of a mix of New Age views, pseudo-physiology and quasi-philosophy. I can not recommend this author for real Christians. Save your money or find a real Christian author if you want to grow in Christ.
