Item Description...
Overview
Is it possible to be spiritual without being religious? Can spirituality be separated from "the complications of religious institutions"? Convert and theologian Reid Blackmer Locklin thinks not. Combining personal experience with insights from Hindu and Christian traditions, Locklin offers a highly personal guide to religious commitment in a world characterized by religious pluralism. Locklin demonstrates, through his "spirituality of institutional commitment," that a religious institution is simply a meeting point of spiritual seekers and teachers, which is both natural and indispensable when seeking holiness. Both an invitation and response, Locklin's guide is informed by ancient sources as well as contemporary experience. Spiritual but Not Religious? offers a fresh and personally engaging view of the Christian Church as a raft-not an obstacle-on the journey to the farther spiritual shore.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A profound contemplation and mediation of differing specifics in pursuit of a general goal   Aug 14, 2005
Written by a theologist who teaches in the Christianity and Culture Program at Saint Michael's College, University of Toronto, Spiritual But Not Religious? An Oar Stroke Closer to the Farther Shore, is an exploration of diversely plural religious beliefs. Inviting the contemplative individual to consider institutions such as the Christian church and other religious institutions not as obstacles to knowing faith, but as rafts that gradually bring one an oar stroke closer to the farthest shore. A profound contemplation and mediation of differing specifics in pursuit of a general goal - reverence and love for the Divine.
