Publisher's Summary

Can you be an atheist and still believe in God?

Can you be a true believer and still doubt?

Can Zen give us a way past our constant fighting about God?

Brad Warner was initially interested in Buddhism because he wanted to find God, but Buddhism is usually thought of as godless. In the three decades since Warner began studying Zen, he has grappled with paradoxical questions about God and managed to come up with some answers. In this fascinating search for a way beyond the usual arguments between fundamentalists and skeptics, Warner offers a profoundly engaging and idiosyncratic take on the ineffable power of the "ground of all being."

    "Uncontroversially Thorough"

    The subject matter of Brad Warner's book "There Is No God and He Is Always with You" could be extremely controversial. But Warner has thought through much of the opinions expressed and has explained his points in a way that, even if the reader doesn't agree, they should be able to recognize his position as well dictated and holding equal merit to their own.

    I don't know if I agree with all of Warner's arguments, but his perspective is fun, entertaining and addictive enough to keep me listening.

    There is something to be greatly respected by the fact that Warner records and narrates his own books. Even with the production flaws that life brings, I find this choice to provide a powerful connection to the man behind the words that just reading or a different narrator would lack.

    "The jury is kinda out on this one...."

    I have to think about this one. A good read, possibly very good (when it sinks in). Brad Warner is a likable guy with a refreshing view on Buddhism vs god.

    3,5 stars for content + 0,5 for author coolness when "speaking up".

    I recomend this one. Alongside the likes of Timber Hawkeye, Brad Warner represent an important new breed of authors putting buddhism into a down to earth context. (from e western perspective). They make buddhism graspable (if that makes ant sense?)

    You have to listen fit the right reasons, mind open. Check your preconceptions you'll enjoy.

    Retiree who loves audio books. I like mostly nonfiction, understanding our world and the people in it, but some good fiction is welcome too.

    "Great title!"

    The title about sums it up. Things often don't make sense, so how do we sort things out? Is there a God? what is God? Who knows, but this is Mr. Warner's opinion on the subject, not Buddhist teachings, but rather his own thoughts. It didn't answer any questions for me, but I found it very interesting to follow his thinking. The book is well written and I enjoyed his "at home" narration, background noises and all.

    "A worthy backup to Harcore Zen"

    A worthy follow up to his other works, which I read in paperback. Worth it. Very engaging.
