& 01C;I& 019;m spiritual but not religious& 01D; is a phrase no longer& ; voiced by only the young and those who have left the& ; church. It is now a phrase used to describe the spiritual& ; lives of the middle-aged and beyond, as well as& ; those who continue to seek sustenance for their souls& ; within church settings. Whether young or old, churchconnected& ; or not, there is a spiritual restlessness& ; among those who seek an authentic faith life but do& ; not find conventional religious teachings meaningful.& ; This accessible guide to a meaningful spiritual& ; life is a salve for the spiritually anxious and hungry.& ; It reinterprets traditional religious teachings central& ; to the Christian faith& 014;God, Jesus, faith, prayer,& ; morality and more& 014;in a way that connects with& ; those who have outgrown the beliefs and devotional& ; practices that once made sense to them. It helps& ; readers find new ways to understand and relate to& ; traditional, narrowly defined Christian & 01C;truths& 01D;& ; that honor their full spiritual power and scope.& ; Ideal for personal spiritual nourishment, small& ; group practice or as a spiritual direction resource,& ; this guide invites readers to open their minds and& ; hearts to the full impact of Christian teachings and& ; to consider alternative ways to understand them.
