In this landmark book, popular author and secular humanist Dale McGowan explores some of the stories of these unions.

    Religion is in a continuous state of evolution, and beliefs, values, and practices are changing over time. All religions, including Christianity and Islam, can evolve to accept secularism and the scientific way of knowing to become agnostic, and even atheistic, without losing their essential value. Haley and McGowan explain how you can help this natural process and share reality with your friends and family in a way that encourages religions to embrace the best of humanity's knowledge and values.
