As many of you know, I’m a fan of learning about different religions. I like the idea of picking and choosing the things you like from them and ignoring the rest. I also toy with the idea of starting my own religion and then using it in my quest for global domination. This is why I was thrilled to get a review copy of “Create Your Own Religion: A How-To Book Without Instructions” by Daniele Bolelli. Sounds perfect, right?
In fact, it is. Bolelli’s book is this girl’s dream. “Create Your Own Religion” is wonderfully researched book that covers all aspects of all religions. Essentially encouraging you to choose what you like from them, and leaving the rest! Would it be wrong to call it so much fun? If it is, too bad, it is so much fun! Although a scholarly work, the writing is in a conversational style and although I can’t imagine it being a problem for any of my readers, the author does swear from time to time. I didn’t think any of you were reading this imagining it was the perfect gift for the first grader in your life, but still, I figured I’d give it a mention.
Although Bolelli lets his personal religious preferences show through, he encourages the reader to approach their spiritual journey with an inquisitive heart but a cautious mind. His combination of intellect and enthusiasm makes “Create Your Own Religion” a must read.
