More Than Allegory by Kastrup Bernardo
This book is a three-part journey into the rabbit hole we call the nature of reality. Its ultimate destination is a plausible living validation of transcendence. Each of its three parts is like a turn of a spiral exploring recurring ideas through the prisms of religious myth truth and belief respectively. With each turn the book seeks to convey a more nuanced and complete understanding of the many facets of transcendence. Part I puts forward the controversial notion that many religious myths are actually true; and not just allegorically so. Part II argues that our own inner storytelling plays a surprising role in creating the seeming concreteness of things and the tangibility of history. Part III suggests in the form of a myth how deeply ingrained belief systems create the world we live in. The three themes myth truth and belief flow into and interpenetrate each other throughout the book.
