Between 1998 and 2008, a million people stopped going to church on a Sunday. More recently, the much publicized abuse scandals within the Roman Catholic Church have forced even the most devout follows to ask some serious questions of their own faith.
In the 21st century, increasing numbers of people are becoming less and less willing to blindly accept the word of traditional religion as an unquestionable truth. Despite the dramatic increase in shared agnosticism the appetite for answers to the long-standing questions of mankind remains as strong as ever. Questions such as:
After two decades of searching for the answers to these and many more of man's deepest questions, Craig Beck discovered something amazing and life changing. It took a complete loss of faith and disillusionment with religion to force a dramatic change in his path that revealed not only the answers to those burning questions but also the secrets to life as we dream it to be - full of abundance, happiness and love.

....yes, just maybe not as many people think. Craig passionately argues the case for pantheism and answers many questions whilst raising many others. What I enjoyed the most about this was Craig's excellent reading voice (he's worked extensively in radio after all) and skillful use of hypnotic language (he's also a hypnotherapist). It was great to listen to someone who after wrestling with these questions reached largely the same conclusions I did when I went through a similar period of questioning. Four stars because, it's a bit on the short side and occasionally Craig can get a bit carried away. Nevertheless a thoroughly enjoyable listen.
This audio book present the author's views on religion and his struggles to come to grips with it. The material in the book/audiobook is of a very high quality and takes the listener through different aspects and beliefs of different religions. The audio is very clear and makes you want to listen to it again and again. Great insight into religious beliefs - different gods.
I'm not and have never been religious but this was a great listen so please don't be put you off if you're not in to the title.
A very interesting read indeed and it has certainly opened up my mind to some very deep ideas and theories about our creation and being. Love it!
This audiobook is certainly worth listening to, it is well read and gives plenty of issues to ponder over.
Craig Beck is able to put his story over clearly, he makes it 'easy listening'
"Fabulous, serendipitous, broadening, perspective"
I prefer the audio since my options of enjoyment are expanded. I can enjoy in the car, plane, road trip or anywhere that provides audio access. Craig expands the awareness in an open minded humorous way. Hearing the voice is quite beneficial.
The sub attraction series and Law of attraction "the Switch"
The girl friends aggressive giant of a small dog.
When Craig exposed how closed minded we often are and resistant to differences this really makes one realize how stuck we are in our EGO.
Craig, Thank you for allowing me to be part of your universe.
"It's entertaining and enlightening!"
It's truly a great audio book! I've listened to it many times.
Craig Beck is a great Story teller. I've listened to a number of his audio books and though at times they overlap I find the information that's being presented will worth the repetition.
"Beck is Spiritual and Metaphysical"
I'd recommend this book to any Believer or Nonbeliever. It's interesting to see how the author went from Believer to Atheist and back to Believer that made up his own very interesting definition of God and how he/it operates.
The moment I realized that Craig Beck totally backpaddled on his Atheism and went back to believing in supernatural possibilities.
Craig Beck has a totally unique and outside the box concept of God. I liked it a lot. I personally do not believe there is much chance of a greater power, but his ideas were new and nice to hear.
Christians will hear cool new things and an Atheist that is not a strong Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris Atheist just might find themselves saying... I wonder if Beck is onto something.
"This changes your beliefs"
Short, to the point, showing that religion as we know it today, does not serve humanity
"Craig, this was awesome!"
Absolutely, only if I thought they could handle it. It's the most inspirational book I have read in a long time and it was exactly what I needed. I was having a religious crisis and Craig completely straightened it out for me. Thank you!
No character's it is not fiction
I LOVE that Craig reads his own books. It is so awesome and I wish more authors would do that. He has so much passion it is hard to want to jump up and yell lol
When he got down to the human face we put onto God.
"Lot's of questions answered with logic!"
Powerful, Informative, Enjoyable
There really isn't a character per say. The author speaks about finding the answers to his questions through silence and the soul of your mind.
When the Jehovah Witnesses came to his door.. THE BEST!
I was shocked.. I found someone else who has had the same questions answered in the same way I have before.
If you have an open mind and questions about who, what, when, where and why God.. you will enjoy listening to this book!
"Enchanting Author and Speaker"
I enjoyed the author's real-ness. He is enjoyable to listen to.
I appreciate his sincerity but I only wish he had offered
Yes, it was a bit short. I will have to purchase other titles.
"Open your mind"
One of the best books because it's hard to think out of this box. Open you mind and see what can happen great Great ideas
"One of the best audible experiences I've had!!!"
Before purchasing this book i was a bit apprehensive, i didn't want to hear someone misguide my opinion about God...quite the contrary. I had one of the utmost awakening experiences ever, after listening to this book. All the questions that has been nagging inside of me for years has been answered! You have to be 'ready' to receive this information. So true is the statement, "when the student is ready the master appears". I listened to it twice the same day i bought it. Craig Beck has a very clear and precise way of enabling you to 'get it'!! I feel totally enlightened. I've read other books that has given me some of the same thoughts and suggestions but this book totally brought it home! I'm so impressed and feel like its time for me to live...because i know, God lives inside of me!!
"The absolute truth"
I have listened to it several times. I have found it excellent and confirmation of what I believe has been revealed to me in a similar way from whom I call God
I would say I understand Craig's desire to spread this amasing secret !!! I felt the depth of his knowing and the passion behind his truth !
His revelation experience !!
Craig I am so grateful you wrote the God enigma. I pray that the spirit reveals His truth to many many more people through you.
