ENVISION THIS: A move from religious dogma to spirituality would have profound effects on our culture
Author, Alan John Cooper, notes: “Over the last 50 or 55 years, since baby boomers such as I enter teenage-hood, we’ve begun to see a significant downturn in church attendance, But there’s a growing spiritual hunger in terms of environmental awareness, human rights – nationally or internationally - and social consciousness.”
His novel, The SECOND, a work of profound and moving secular spirituality, explores the socio-political ramifications of the difference between spirituality and religion. It is based on Alan’s years of research, delving into the whys of dogmatic religious belief in order to expose “the hypocrisy of evangelicalism…“While the book is fiction, it does take a piece of bark out of those religious fundamentalists.”
It also contains an exciting story line and deep analysis of human character. In The SECOND, we follow the protagonist, a vibrant French Canadian, Chantelle, who promotes a spirituality of principles and not dogma. Embracing her activism, she moves across the U.S. and Canada, balancing a rocky romance with an aspiring, half-Jewish architect, and a connection to a New York organization with a hate-based agenda kept secret from her until too late.
Alan started writing after being struck by an impaired driver and incurring a severe brain injury. His first book, Brain Injury, was released to great acclaim in 2006. His articles on spiritual issues have appeared in several Canadian publications.
