December 21, 2014•15 min
Drawing on groundbreaking sociological research and extensive in-depth interviews with men and women across the country, Living the Secular Life illuminates this demographic shift with the moral convictions that govern secular individuals. Zuckerman reveals that, despite opinions to the contrary, nonreligious Americans possess a unique moral code that allows them to effectively navigate the complexities of modern life. Spiritual self-reliance, clear-eyed pragmatism, and an abiding faith in the Golden Rule to adjudicate moral decisions: these common principles are shared across secular society. By sharing the real-life stories and beliefs of individuals who have chosen to live a secular life, Zuckerman demonstrates these principles in action and points to their usage throughout daily life.
