God Without Religion
Questioning Centuries of Accepted Truths

By Sankara Saranam
Foreword by Arun Gandhi

The son of self-exiled Iraqi Jews, Sankara Saranam shows why organized religion has long been the cause of humanity’s worst wars and most acute suffering—then paves the way beyond this divisive history into more expansive perceptions capable of creating a unified, peaceful future. Through a series of penetrating inquiries and practices, God Without Religion invites readers to examine their beliefs, explore the nature of the divine, and develop a personal relationship with God.

God Without Religion advocates a more intelligent and thoughtful approach to the spiritual life . . . and offers positive ways to develop a spiritual viewpoint.”
—Thomas Moore
Author of Care of the Soul and Dark Nights of the Soul

“[A] fine, fierce, wise, and deeply helpful book.”
—Andrew Harvey
Author of The Direct Path

“One of the most extraordinary books of our time . . .”
—Hank Wesselman, PhD
Author of The Spiritwalker Trilogy and The Journey to the Sacred Garden

“A commonsense approach [leading to] the clear understanding that we are all one.”
—Melissa Etheridge
