Item description for Tomorrow's God: How We Create Our Worlds by Lloyd Geering...
According to Lloyd Geering, the world we inhabit is largely a product of our own making. We supply its meaning. Thus "God," a central symbol of meaning, is entirely a human creation. In Tomorrow's God, Geering traces the collective "drift toward meaning" that gave rise to the various religions and explores the reasons they are now in decline. He argues that, for our own survival, we must consciously create new meaning for our lives and shows how the Christian tradition may lead toward a new world of meaning.

Pushing the Boundaries Feb 23, 2006
I found this book to be extremely valuable in my on going religious journey. Geering has laid an anthropological and historical basis for where we are today in the evolution of religion. His emphasis on the need for a more environmentally oriented God for tommorow is also provacative, although perhaps less convincing.
I would recommend the book for religious "searchers" whose minds keep pushing them to develop a religion they can embrace in the scientific and post-modern age.
