Drawing on the wisdom of 2,500 years of contemplative non-religious writing, A. C. Grayling, Britain’s most popular and widely read philosopher, has created a secular bible; a fascinating book which ranges from the origins of the universe to small matters of courtesy and kindness in everyday life.

Designed to be read as narrative and also to be dipped into for inspiration, encouragement and consolation, The Good Book offers a thoughtful non-religious alternative to the many people who do not follow one of the world’s great religions.

Going back to traditions older and more various than those of Christianity,  including the non-theistic philosophical and literary schools of the great civilisations of both West and East, Grayling collects, edits, and organises the collective secular wisdom of the world in one highly readable volume.
