Rewrites the narrative plan for salvation as the story of religion calling us out of nature and gradually making us ourselves. ISBN13:9781598150261. Release Date:December 2010.

In this book I aim to set before the general reader a fully modern alternative to the traditional Grand Narrative theology of Latin, or Western, Christianity. So begins A New Great Story. Christianity’s classic plan of salvation -its so-called grand narrative-was a vast myth of cosmic Creation, Fall and Redemption. Don Cupitt is a Life Fellow and former Dean of Emmanuel College, Cambridge.

In A New Great Story, Don Cupitt rewrites the old grand-narrative as the story of how religion called us out of nature and gradually made us ourselves: social beings in an ordered world, language-using and self-aware. Religious ideas, whether they build civilization or inspire criticism of it, are always leading ideas. They made us everything that we are. Cupitt sees the history of religion as culminating in the teaching of Jesus, who announced a new age in which human beings are at last fully themselves, fully reconciled to each other and to life.
