What if the Bible never once mentioned God or the afterlife? British philosopher A.C. Grayling wanted to find out, so he created a new kind of Good Book that draws from secular philosophical writings throughout history. His aim was not to attack religion or displace any particular religious text. Rather, he wanted to offer an alternative rooted in humanism, yet modeled after the structure of the Bible.

A. C. Grayling is a professor of philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London. He is the author of "Among the Dead Cities," "Descartes," "Toward the Light of Liberty," "Meditations for the Humanist," and "Thinking of Answers." A fellow of the World Economic Forum and past chairman of the human rights organization June Fourth, he contributes frequently to the Times (London), Financial Times, Economist, New Statesman, and Prospect.

A.C. Grayling spoke at Town Hall in Seattle on April 13, 2011, about "The Good Book: A Humanist Bible."
