by Leslie Scrase

We all want to know how to achieve good, positive, satisfying, fulfilling and happy lives, and at its heart this book helps enable us to obtain the understanding necessary to attain these positive attributes.
    Leslie Scrase’s thoughtful and straightforward approach to the weighty subject matter of the title make it interesting and accessible. By racing through history and whizzing selectively around the world, we can see that belief and unbelief have always lived side by side and that belief has developed from very primitive beginnings to metamorphose into the major religions of today.
    Philosophical thinking spans both religion and unbelief, but it is less well known that ethics is also a subject that spans both. Believers and unbelievers have always been concerned with trying to pin down the values and principles by which people should try to live.
    So the primary purpose of this book is to paint a picture of human thought and endeavour which may help us as we think about our own lives and how best to live them.
