Perceptions is a non-fiction book criticizing religion not by its name but by its concept, its social effects and influences and more. The book has over 300 citations and criticizes the vacancy of religious notions and scripture and takes on theologians as well. The author challenges the beliefs of top religions today by merely using logic and reasoning, questioning the faith.
I also appreciated the author adding to the argument by discussing new scientific religions and how they have affected people in the modern world. Eastern philosophy and other spiritual faiths are also mentioned here.
I would sincerely suggest that anyone with an open mind would enjoy reading this book. You would need to be receptive towards judgment, criticism and open your eyes and ears, listen and read, to what is being challenged rather than be defensive and block the debate. Only then, this book could be intriguing to read.
The literature was scholar material. It could be used for a thesis or be read as a university-level subject matter. I recommend it for people who like to read about religious concepts and debates.
