The Bible Beyond Religion

In this book Don Murray continues his understanding of the transformation that is happening in the spiritual realm as a change from supernatural thinking to natural thinking. Even as we used to think of the Greek gods and goddesses as supernatural fantasies we now understand them as psychic realities. The same is happening within our contemporary religions.

However, there is much more to our spiritual traditions than supernaturalism. In myth, story and actual history they record the wisdom of the ages of human experience.

In his new book, The Bible Beyond Religion, Don, having come from the Christian tradition, explores the wisdom we can inherit from the Bible, after Christianity has faded as a creative religious force. With consciousness becoming a focus of our contemporary search for meaning, Murray sees the Bible as a witness to the struggle of one tradition in learning how to be human and thus growing in consciousness.

 From Eve’s first step in the Garden of Eden, to Job’s challenge to God, to the fulness of Jesus’ humanity, to the New Heaven and New Earth of Revelation, the biblical story recounts our long journey toward wholeness; Revelation being a grand mythic vision of the way ahead.

"In this book I carry forward the abiding interest of my Scottish Presbyterian ancestors in the Bible, and its wisdom for their time, our time, and every time.” - Don Murray
