The philosopher AC Grayling has created a secular bible, but its guidance for a good life fails to convince Genevieve Fox.

    In the unholy trinity of professional atheists, A. Grayling has always tended to be regarded as the good cop. Less coldly clinical in tone than Richard Dawkins, less aggressively combative than Christopher Hitchens, Grayling approaches the God debate with a gently teasing charm that could almost - but should never - be mistaken for conciliation. It doesn't attack religion, it's a positive book; there's nothing negative in it. People may think it's against religion but it isn't.

    A humanist take on the Bible? Not such a Good Book

    Mark Dresser Seven: An Interview with ionnalee. The people were in great perturbation and their hearts failed them for fear of the things that were coming on the earth. Then arose Anthony the Seer, a man whose locks had not been shorn during the many long years he communed with the ancients in his cave of making.

    He came forth blinking into the light and delivered unto the people a great book that contained the vision they longed for, and they rejoiced greatly. Anthony the Seer, though mighty in learning, was a man of modest and courteous demeanour. Afraid that the people might come and try to make him their leader — since that is the kind of thing people who cannot think for themselves are wont to do — he was careful to tell them that he himself was not the author of the visions contained in the book he had brought forth from his cave, he was merely their transmitter and occasional redactor.

    Moreover, it was not a new vision he had brought unto them. It was ancient human wisdom, a wisdom that had been suppressed by the dark force of the Old Religion , which hated people thinking for themselves and taking responsibility for their own lives.

    But now, as the old superstitions retreated in bickering disarray, that older wisdom had found its voice again. All he had done was to gather these ancient traditions and compose them into the narratives now contained in a thick but attractive volume — complete with a blue ribbon to mark the attentive reader's place — he called The Good Book.

    He urged the people to read it in any way they chose, and grow wise.
