Excerpt(s): LSD is dangerous-but
its greatest danger may not be what we commonly suppose. There
may be fear and peril in a `bad trip,' but a `good trip' may possess
features which fundamentally challenge our religion and our God.
This is the first book to make the connection between the LSD
experience and some of the main currents in the New Theology-and
especially in the ultra-radical Death of God theology. Together,
LSD and radical theology form a powerful movement within a still
larger trend: ... a `leap to the East' ... a religious shift toward
pantheism ... a revived interest
in metaphysics ... it is possible that we are witnesses today
to a kind of cosmic shoot-out at the OK Corral. (dust jacket)
