Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor-in-chief of Tikkun The single best book giving an objective look at the burgeoning interest in spirituality that exists in the English language.
Spirituality & Practice We agree with Gottlieb when he affirms a piece of wisdom which traveled the world: 'Do your best and leave the rest to God'...Gottlieb puts his faith in grace and in the human capacity for transformation.
Christopher Chapple, Loyola Marymount University Roger Gottlieb has created a piece of art in surveying the literature on how meditation and Yoga might help reduce pain and suffering, then switching to a heart-felt narration of struggles within his own family.
Stephanie Kaza, Professor of Environmental Studies, University of Vermont This book validates and provides grounding for the wide range of discussions and claims around 'spirituality.' It is much needed in a time when many claim to be 'spiritual' rather than 'religious,' eschewing organized religion for individualized experiences of the sacred.
Bill J. Leonard, James and Marilyn Dunn Professor of Baptist Studies and Professor of Church History, Wake Forest University Gottlieb is an outstanding scholar whose work in areas related to spirituality is well known and much appreciated. This book is timely, perhaps overdue, given the extensive interest in 'things spiritual' in the broader culture, the intense concern for a more eclectic approach to 'the spiritual' in the larger culture, and the need for a single volume text that offers a survey of opinions, options and practices.
Geert Faseur, Journal for the Study of Marriage & Spirituality encourages the reader to reread this volume and to reflect upon his/her own way of life.
