Read a three-page interview
with Thomas Moore by Tim Miejan, editor and co-publisher of The Edge
an online magazine about holistic living. Moore answers questions about his new book, A Religion of One's Own
and shares plans for his next book.
When asked, "What is your sense of the relationship between our current world and religion?" Moore's response includes, "I think the way people get information in the news and other sources gives them the impression that they can go it alone, that they don’t need religion, that science can handle or explain everything and give us our meaning for the future and that it’s going to be a technological future. I think that would be a real shame, because a human life is much more subtle than that. There is a spiritual dimension; there is a soul dimension. I think that’s where we are at the moment, and that’s the importance of the conversation that is developing around a book like mine."
