This book was written for those who have left their Christian faith or who have become what Bishop John Shelby Spong calls, “believers in exile.” It also speaks to those who are questioning their current Christian faith. It describes a mystical view of Christianity that incorporates Gnosticism, quantum physics, shamanism, cognitive psychology, Jungian psychology, and biblical scholarship. At the end of each chapter are prompts, questions, and activities that invite readers to make personal connections with the ideas presented. These are designed to be recorded in a journal. This book can be used with a book club, a study group, or individually. It will be a tool for your spiritual growth and renewal.
