"Desire is wanting something to change..."

FROM FEAR TO LOVE
My Journey Beyond Christianity
by Harry Willson

Here at last is the third book in Harry Willson's humanist trilogy. The "enquiry" that he began at the age of 62 spilled over into two carefully crafted and reader-friendly works of philosophy, Freedom from God and Myth and Mortality. Harry's readers will delight in this retrospective of a life dedicated to discovery and frank discussion of what makes us tick. Those who come for the first time to the work of Harry Willson, former clergyman and committed writer-teacher-activist, will discover an informed, irreverent voice of reason in a world gone mad on dogma, hype, guilt trips and power trips. Above all, Harry's commitment to personal and mutual liberation shines through.

"From Fear to Love began as personal enquiry: 'Well, Harry, if you don't believe that anymore, what do you believe, and on the basis of what?' At one point I exclaimed, 'I've found the cure to a disease that no one else has!' But now I do not believe that the difficulty is so exclusively my own." --Harry Willson, 1997
