Item description for Secret Affairs of the Soul: Ordinary People's Extraordinary Experiences of the Sacred by Paul Hawker...
Overview Examines the silence surrounding experiences of the sacred and finds concrete language to communicate the genuine struggle to express the inexpressible.
Publishers Description Statistics show that over 80 per cent of North Americans have experienced an encounter with an undeniably strong spiritual force. So why do we hear so little about these 'soul affairs' -- profound moments of love, dramatic insight, happiness, or rapture? Paul Hawker weaves religious experiences of mystics and saints with modern day accounts and shows that while these soul affairs are expressed differently by context of culture, custom, or language, we have all sensed something very similar.

Know the Man Apr 7, 2005
I know Paul Hawker personally. He is a hypocrite, a liar and a cheat. If these are the type of qualities in a person that you are trusting to tell you how to discern Gods voice then this is the book for you.
Secret Affairs of the Soul Dec 11, 2000
Secret Affairs of the Soul is an amazing book which helps the reader identify with those experiences we sometimes have in life and yet really wonder about their validity. Hawker has explored and researched that we are not alone, had not lost it, but have crossed that thin line between the earth and what is spiritual. Through his use personal examples and examples from people around the world this book definitely leaves you with much to think about.
