A weak and cynical publication of Geering's dated ideas, brought out to make money for someone (I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, because he's such a nice man, so I shall say the publishers) as the millennium rolled over. Geering refuses to acknowledge that there is any mid-point between Don Cupitt and Billy Graham, between "Ditchkins" and Driscoll, and makes fame and money out of the refusal. In this edition he merely rehashes what he had by then long been saying. Half a point because I can't give lower. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0944344763, Paperback)

Lloyd Geering observes that we have come not only to the end of the millennium, but to the end of Christendom, the dissolution of Christian orthodoxy, the failure of modernism, and the end of old mythic certainties. We are entering a new era, the global era, which is post-Christian. We must find some way to end humanity's war with itself and with the planet. In The World to Come, Geering sketches his vision of a new global spirituality that incorporates the best of our legacy from the past and promotes care for all living creatures and the earth itself.
