Beginning from the premise that spirituality can be based in the desire to overcome self-deception, Devil In The Details values an interest in what is true over faith or wishful thinking.
This insightful essay is a guide to grasping three key logical fallacies the author refers to as a "diabolical trinity," which he asserts are present in every single argument for the existence of anything supernatural.
Spirituality is often the domain of fuzzy logic and vague beliefs. But this need not be the case! Julian Walker identifies the three key mistakes in reasoning made again and again in our thinking about, and discussion of, subjects like God, The Big Bang, evolution, souls, astrology, psychics and other aspects of religion and pop spirituality.
We live in a time in which old world superstition still battles scientific method and reason for dominance of the political, moral, cultural and spiritual landscapes. Though many suggest that religion and science can co-exist without conflict, their pictures of the world are radically divergent.

A bracing and inspiring read, Devil In The Details: 3 Keys To Thinking More Clearly About Spirituality is a rallying cry for clarity of mind about these central questions of human existence.
