Description


What is faith? It is not something we must receive from a religion, nor is it a quality we must abandon in order to become rational. "Faith," writes bestselling author Roger Housden, "implies a basic trust in the way life weaves its patterns-an awareness that is not passive or fatalistic, but actively engaged with and accepting all of life's twists and turns." At a time when more and more people self-identify as "spiritual but not religious," Housden's new book Keeping the Faith Without a Religion offers us a way to recognize and embrace the extraordinary mystery of our lives without resorting to dogmatic beliefs or nihilistic scientism. He invites us to investigate:
. Faith and belief-how the unattainable desire for certainty has come to replace our true understanding of faith
. Becoming your own spiritual authority-guidance for building a personal faith based on your own inner experience
. How we can integrate a regular spiritual practice into our lives without subscribing to a particular tradition, and more
Today millions of people are seeking a new approach to spirituality that honors both the rational and the mystical in equal measure. With Keeping the Faith Without a Religion, Roger Housden offers a guidebook for this growing population of free-thinking seekers-an inspiring call to step beyond the need for answers and trust ourselves to the unfolding of our singular, extraordinary life.
