Evolutionary Religion

Here is a thoughtful review of what sounds like an interesting book, Evolutionary Religion, by J. L. Schellenberg. An excerpt from the review:

I think what Schellenberg is really saying is that religious believers should be much less dogmatic, especially about very detailed and obscure and controversial beliefs. They should be much more open to new possibilities of relating to an ultimately valuable transcendent reality. And they should not insist on precise ancient formulations and rules, but should be ready to re-think what makes for human well-being and human maturity. All this is well said, and probably needs saying.
