Beyond Religion is a story of Kiden, a woman searching for the meaning of life in general and religion in particular. Born and raised in a multi-religious, multi-cultural society, Kiden Judith was not living in her own world. Like any one of us, she lived among her people, with her siblings, parents, neighbors and friends. She had schoolmates and colleagues. She resided in a real physical world. She was living in a great city, well known all over the world.
Religion, the rhetorical speech of religious folks, trying to explain everything away, none could answer her real-life questions. Her great grandparents’ religions—the African Traditional Religions—could not help with life’s puzzling questions.
The terrifying fear of death, sickness, hunger, the untold suffering, the horror of life, and the unquenchable search for love and truth, were her daily experience.
Will anyone help her out along the way?
Will one of the oldest religious books finally come to her aid?
Will the Mother Nature explain to her what life really is?
Will experience be her best teacher?
Let’s follow Kiden Judith in her quest, and see where her search for truth, love and comfort leads, in such a society as hers. Beyond Religion has the details.
