Product description


Undeniably thought-provoking (Christopher Hart, Sunday Times)

Truly ... a good book, full of sage counsel, wise advice and comfort for the sorrowing (Richard Holloway, Observer)

There is an immense depth of human wisdom on display here, and five minutes with any passage will have you contemplating all day (Independent on Sunday)

There are many sentences, thoughts and sentiments in The Good Book that are illuminating, life-enhancing and revelatory on a personal level (Glasgow Herald)

I am glad he put this book together and it will occupy a valuable place in my library as a source for inspiration and wisdom. **** (Terry Waite, Sunday Express)

Grayling is ... a skilled writer of prose ... most impressively [he] demonstrates mastery of Greek history and culture in Histories and Acts (Rabbi Ariel Abel, Jewish News)

Professor Grayling himself neatly exemplifies the values of calm rationality which are at the heart of Stoicism, and which influenced early Christian thought (Church Times)

Book Description

The Good Book, A. C. Grayling's best-selling secular bible, is now published in a handsome, smaller format hardback at a competitive price.
