People find it comfortable and convenient to create their own version of God--but can they really face the God who created them? The phrase "I'm spiritual but not religious" has become a cliché. How are open-minded "religious people" supposed to react to this hazy--and often lazy--statement of faith? Lillian Daniel responds by telling stories of people looking for God in the midst of everyday life, affirming that religion can be weird, wonderful--and well worth trying. While so-called spiritual life keeps people self-focused and vague, religious people have something that "spiritual" people do not: centuries of careful religious thought, ongoing meaningful debate, and, most important, a supportive community that challenges and strengthens their faith. Humorous and sincere, this is a book about people finding God in the most unexpected, unspiritual places: prisons, airports, yoga classes, committee meetings, and strangest of all, right there in their local church.
