The Global Imperative


About this book

Today’s discoveries in Big Science, innovations in technology, along with the globalization of society and empowerment of the individual are bringing about ever-increasing benefits for humanity. Neverthless, worldwide justice, peace, equality and understanding still elude us. For a more humane society, there is an overarching global imperative that we reconsider and reevaluate the claims of religion, the messages of science and our vision for society. With this new thinking can come a most positive and promising time in world history, a new Axial Age which could offer humankind the opportunity to bring about a truly better world and a more humane society. This goodness will happen only if we open our minds to new ways of thinking and believing. The Global Imperative offers reasons to change, guidance for our changing, and rationale for our success.

In this very provocative book, author Kelley urges all society to embrace new thinking based on fact-based scientific revelations about human existence. Rarely have my own beliefs been so profoundly affected as they have in reading The Global Imperative.”

“Blaine Kelley has written a compelling volume challenging the factual faith of the Christian story with power and sensitivity. The Church will ignore the message of this book at its peril.”

Wyche Fowler

“This book demonstrates how a rethinking of supernatural religious beliefs and a recognition of Big Science moral truths can lead to breakthrough new possibilities for a better future.”

Jeffrey Small, Jr.

“Kelley’s original-thinking pronouncement that global society is now entering a science-led, global-spanning, positive New Axial Age is profound good news for these unsettling times. Must reading.”

Before we can ever know a world of fairness and happiness,
we must first accept a time of discovery and change.

To be open and accepting of the changes required, and acting
to bring this about, is the Global Imperative of our time.
