Sponsored by the Fetzer Institute and the
Nathan Cummings Foundation, this resource gathers the wisdom of the
greatest spiritual teachers and experts from the major religious
traditions in America today. Focusing on the essentials of human life
that range from daily activities to major life transitions, "Gifts
of the Spirit" offers an illuminating and authoritative tour
through a variety of religious customs. Illustrations.
Gifts of the Spirit offers an everyday spiritual path that each of us
can put into practice. While many of us will remain anchored on one
tradition - whether it be Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, or other - this
book shows that our lives can be enhanced and deepened by encounters
with other practices and perspectives, as well as by exploration of the
hidden riches of our own tradition.
