E-BOOK EXCERPT

The rising population known as "nones" for its members' lack of religious affiliation is changing American society, politics, and culture. Many nones believe in God and even visit places of worship, but they do not identify with a specific faith or belong to a spiritual community. Corinna Nicolaou is a none, and in this layered narrative, she describes what it is like for her and thousands of others to live without religion or to be spiritual without committing to a specific faith. Nicolaou tours America's major traditional religions to see what, if anything, one might lack without God. She moves through Christianity's denominations, learning their tenets and worshiping alongside their followers. She travels to Los Angeles to immerse herself in Judaism, Berkeley to educate herself about Buddhism, and Dallas and Washington, D.C., to familiarize herself with Islam. She explores what light they can shed on the fears and failings of her past, and these encounters prove the significant role religion still plays in modern life. They also exemplify the vibrant relationship between religion and American culture and the enduring value it provides to immigrants and outsiders. Though she remains a devout none, Nicolaou's experiences reveal points of contact between the religious and the unaffiliated, suggesting that nones may be radically revising the practice of faith in contemporary times.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

What if you were told that everything you believe about your religion is false? A self-proclaimed “messenger from The Maker,” arrives with a dire warning: the world will soon end, and The Maker will not intervene. There is only one way for us to save ourselves and her mission is to show us the way. She quickly harnesses the strength of the Internet, social media, and the mainstream press. Her message resonates strongly with those already feeling disenfranchised from the organized religions of the world. Soon, millions believe in what she says, abandoning the restrictive religions that they once followed. The unaffiliated, sometimes referred to as “Nones,” rapidly increase their numbers. This globally expanding “religion of no religion” soon begins to threaten the leaders of the major organized religions, led by the United Religious Congress. As they prepare for their massive world-wide “Call to the Mountain” conference, they are determined to regain their power and their followers at whatever the cost.
