For God's Sake
Religion, Atheism, and why I gave them up
by Alan Budge

This is the – all too true – story of one person’s tragi-comic quest for spiritual enlightenment. Having given up on the (entirely godless) realm of would-be smart London restaurants, he journeyed widely (and frequently wildly) through India, China, Tibet, and parts of West Yorkshire. He also worked for various would-be deeply spiritual organisations. This unflinching quest for truth – incorporating walk-on parts for everyone from Marianne Faithfull to the Dalai Lama – led, not entirely unexpectedly – to a far from enlightened descent into alcoholism and misery.

Having sobered up, and grown up (a bit), our hero began to ponder: what is really at the heart of all this spiritual carry-on anyway? And can it be of any use, given the challenges we face? What if we’re all for it anyway? What’s the appropriate response –spiritual or otherwise, to that? All good questions

For God’s Sake is spirituality without the usual self-help smugness, written by a normal, flawed human being, in the hope of engaging a similar audience. It deals with serious themes of spiritual development, and the role this might play in our current environmental crisis – all in the form of a heartfelt, and often very funny personal memoir.
