Book Description:

Hope…. And The Hedgehog is a ‘pocketbook philosophy for the present age’, a digestible exploration of the meaning of life which aims to unpick the big questions most of us spend our lives avoiding: how did life begin, how does it end, and what happens to us after we die?

Is there life after death? Is there a higher power? Or, is life one big cosmic accident; a clash of particles and atoms and one big bang? Tom looks instead at the power of faith and spirituality which he separates from religion. While he does not attempt to present any definitive argument, he looks at all sides, gathering thoughts from history’s most influential philosophers and scientists.

He makes the proposition that, between only two possible explanations for the existence of life, there is a greater likelihood of the one over the other. He believes in the importance of opening up our minds and finding more of a sense of purpose and direction in life – a view that, as we look towards a post-lockdown future, will resonate with many people.

“I chose the book’s title Hope … and the Hedgehog because hope is one of the principal drivers we resort to as human beings when confronted with a challenge to which there is no obvious solution. In the case of this book, that challenge is a very prickly issue: how we came into existence. It is an issue that we are all drawn to, but at the same time we do not want to handle or investigate too closely. Like the proverbial elephant in the room, we know that little hedgehog is there, we just prefer to leave it be – even if, in the end, there is no avoiding it.”  – Tom Vaughan, May 2022.

Hope… and The Hedgehog by Tom Vaughan is a book Vaughan had extensively researched to answer difficult questions like, Is there life after death? And is there a God who has control of our lives after we die?  Vaughan doesn’t try to point you to one thing. Instead he takes what he has found on the subject.If this is a subject you are interestes in, or maybe you have questions about these issues, I encourage you to read this book. Othes may be like me and have it all settled. I don’t need to worry about any of this because of my faith in God and I know what will happen to me, its all settled for me. Read through this book, and while you are reading I hope you can find a peace that will settle it all for you as well. I like the name of this book, it kinda throws you off a bit about what it really is about, but it’s a very clever name! This one is four stars for me.
