How To Be A Good Person Without Being Religious is a proactive work of non-fiction penned by author duo Horatio and Natasha Bennett. This uplifting and cross-cultural work indicates the notion of goodness and what it means to truly aspire to be a good person as a life goal. The authors look at this concept across many different cultures, including religious ideas and some biblical content, but also keeping the work open to those who do not call themselves religious especially but still wish to follow the path of being good. What results is a charming work with many interesting facts, and a central moral message which is both inspiring and empowering.

Author duo Horatio and Natasha Bennett write with smooth and friendly prose that starts the book well and makes it feel as though you are listening to your favorite teacher explain a new subject to you. In this amiable and instructive mode, the authors are able to make many fascinating social, cultural, religious, and philosophical points, discussing many theories of goodness and where the notion comes from all around the world. I was impressed to see a moral message and a Christian message which was not preachy but offered further empowerment to the central idea, and I felt that philosophy and religion came together really well throughout as the ideas built and became more complex. Overall, I would certainly recommend How To Be A Good Person Without Being Religious to all readers seeking moral guidance from an informative source.
