Maybe We Need a New Religion
Maybe We Need a New Religion
PRLog - Jul. 25, 2014 - EL CERRITO, Calif. -- All nine books from author James Hilgendorf are now available on Scribd, the exciting new subscription e-book library allowing unlimited access to over 400,000 books from over 900 publishers, including New York Times bestsellers, literary classics, ground-breaking non-fiction, and reader favorites in every genre.

Hilgendorf's latest release, "Maybe We Need a New Religion", combines the story of the author's personal search for meaning and happiness in his life, and the story of the SGI, or Soka Gakkai International.

Hilgendorf writes:

"Sometime ago, I read a report of a young ten-or-eleven year old boy, who, after being exposed to continuing newspaper and television reports about the fighting going on all over the mIddle East, involving Christians, Muslims and Jews, remarked:

"Maybe we need a new religion."

"The premise of this book is that the beginnings of such a religion have already appeared among us - among followers of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and those with no religious affiliation at all.  It is a relgion, above all, that recognizes and supports the sanctity of life itself.

"Today, this religion is being most prominently spearheaded by the SGI, or Soka Gakkai International, a Buddhist lay organization with 12,000,000 members in 192 countries and territories around the globe.

"You may never have heard of the Soka Gakkai, but the Buddhism of the SGI is on the threshold of becoming the next great world religion.

"My own story, a personal journey of discovery, is a part of this book.  It is a story also of the SGI, and of the still unfulfilled Dream of America, and of a new global civilization that is dawning all over the world.  It is a story written in eternity - the eternity of here and now and forever."

The author's other non-fiction titles include "A New Myth for America"; "The New Superpower"; "Life & Death: A Buddhist Perspective"; "Poems of Death: Time for Eternity"; "Forever Here"; "Handbook for Youth in a Muddied Age"; "The Great New Emerging Civilization"; and "The Buddha and the Dream of America".
