Publishers Description

Is it possible to be spiritual without being religious? Can spirituality be separated from the complications of religious institutions"? Convert and theologian Reid Blackmer Locklin thinks not. Combining personal experience with insights from Hindu and Christian traditions, Locklin offers a highly personal guide to religious commitment in a world characterized by religious pluralism. Locklin demonstrates, through his *spirituality of institutional commitment, - that a religious institution is simply a meeting point of spiritual seekers and teachers, which is both natural and indispensable when seeking holiness. Both an invitation and response, Locklin's guide is informed by ancient sources as well as contemporary experience. "Spiritual but Not Religious?" offers a fresh and personally engaging view of the Christian Church as a raft - not an obstacle - on the journey to the farther spiritual shore.

Chapters are: *Introduction - Raising the Question, - *Chapter 1 - On Seekers, - *Chapter 2 - On Teachers, - *Chapter 3 - On a Shared Communion, - *Chapter 4 - On the Mystery of Others, - and *Conclusion - Filling in the Gaps. - Also includes an index.

"Reid B. Locklin, PhD, teaches in the Christianity and culture program at Saint Michal's College and the University of Toronto. His research publications include ventures into comparative theology and inter religious dialogue, as well as Christian ecclesiology. ""
