BRISBANE POWERHOUSE says
Most Australians (61 percent, according to the last Census) think of themselves as Christian, and around 67 percent of Australian say they believe in God or some ‘higher power’. But only eight percent attend church weekly. Why the gap?

Mackay argues that while our attachment to a traditional idea of God may be waning, our desire for a sense of meaning remains as strong as ever. In his new book Beyond Belief, Mackay looks at the various ways we try to find transcendence in our often stridently materialistic lives and considers what may be lost with the wholesale casting out of organised religion.
