FIRST REVIEWS OF SAVAGE’S ‘GOD, FAITH, AND REASON’ NOW AVAILABLE:
Does God exist? Where is He? Why do bad things happen? What is the value of prayer?
For millennia, philosophers, theologians, and scientists have attempted to provide answers to these essential questions. Now, number one New York Times bestselling author Dr. Michael Savage approaches the subject as both a scientist and a humanist, in a way that is both unique…and deeply personal.
The son of Russian immigrants, Dr. Savage grew up in New York City, a cultural and religious melting pot. Before he became the nation’s top-rated radio talk-show host, Dr. Savage was a botanist, anthropologist, and nutritionist who lived among many societies around the globe. Whatever the color, language, nationality, or education of any of the people Dr. Savage met, they all had at least one thing in common.
Writing from the heart and drawing on a lifetime of observation, listening, reading, thought, and prayer, Dr. Savage has written his most unique and uplifting book, a testament he describes as “one man’s glimpses of God.”
God, Faith, and Reason is an insightful, anecdotal, and witty memoir that threads the needle of faith while reconciling – and often critiquing — the views of different religions, of non-believers, of Soviet-style repression from the left, of hedonists, of the devout. Though the author does not avoid the occasional political observations for which he is best-known, the soul of his groundbreaking new book is not partisanship. It is a collection of lively, wide-ranging thematic essays that can be read from cover-to-cover or opened to any page and enjoyed for just a few moments of reflection. Like the book he most reveres, the Bible, the author’s goal is to provide comfort and inspiration for readers of all ages, food for thought and manna for the soul.
As Dr. Savage writes in the Preface, “The country is turning back to faith because there is nowhere else to go.” God, Faith, and Reason is his wise, heartfelt, and indispensable road map.
Review of Dr. Savage’s GOD, FAITH, AND REASON:
For decades, Michael Savage has been preaching his political faith of borders, language and culture to millions on his nationally-syndicated radio show, The Savage Nation. Now, Savage gives his audience a look into his religious faith and his ideas about the Judeo-Christian foundation of the American culture he has fought all his life to preserve.
But rather than a dry, theological treatise, Savage provides something more akin to an ancient mystery text. Drawing on Christian, Jewish, Buddhist and other spiritual sources, as well as autobiographical material and highlights from his radio show, Savage shares a series of glimpses of God he has experienced over the whole of his life, before and after his groundbreaking radio career.
Moving childhood stories, his dinner with an atheist and a Buddhist, an interview with a Jewish gangster and Savage’s reflections on selected passages from ancient scriptures are just a few of the eclectic group of experiences and insights Savage shares in what is easily the most unique book on spirituality in decades. From his days as a boy growing up in New York City to many years searching for healing plants in the South Seas to his current incarnation as one of the most popular talk radio hosts in the world, Savage has been haunted by glimpses of the divine and struggled to find their meaning.
Rather than trite, orthodox answers, GOD, FAITH, AND REASON presents the reader with one man’s perceptions and consideration of the daily presence of God in the world around us and how the search to find God is the finding itself.
