The Good Book is an alternative, secular Bible. Its principal concern is how life – the good life – should be lived. This book has been made by philosopher A.C.Grayling in the same way that the Judaeo-Christian Bible was made: by redaction, editing, paraphrasing, interpolation, arrangement and rewriting of texts from the last three thousand years of the great secular traditions. It has been made from over a thousand texts by several hundred authors and from collections and anonymous traditions. Its been written in a similar form and similar language to the Christian Bible.
