“With a cheerful, good-natured smile, Daniele Bolelli torpedos the often luxurious but spiritually leaky battleships that sail under the various flags of the world’s organized religions.” —Tom Robbins, bestselling author

“Daniele Bolelli is in the house. Minds will be blown. Lives will be changed.” —Joe Rogan

“Bolelli’s direct confrontation with dogma without giving an inch and without prescribing a new dogma is about as fresh as it gets. His brand of radically honest philosophy is the perfect cure to liberate our minds.”
Mike Vallely
Create Your Own Religion is a call to arms—an open invitation to question all the values, beliefs, and worldviews that humanity has so far held as sacred in order to find the answers we need to the very practical problems facing us.

Writer, philosopher, and professor of comparative religion, Daniele Bolelli, leads the reader through three thousand years of mythology, misogyny, misinformation, and the flat-out lies about “revealed truth” that continue to muddle our ability to live a peaceful life, free of guilt and shame and the ultimate fear of death.

“Our worldviews are in desperate need of some housecleaning,” says Bolelli. “We enter the 21st century still carrying on our backs the prejudices and ways of thinking of countless past generations. What worked for them may or may not still be of use, so it is our job to make sure to save the tools that can help us and let go of the dead weight.”

Daniele Bolelli is a writer, university professor and martial artist and the author of 50 Things You’re Not Supposed to Know: Religion. He is a history professor at Santa Monica College and California State University, Long Beach and is a regular contributor to several magazines both in Italy and in the United States. He lives in Los Angeles.
