CD: Keeping the Faith Without a Religion (5CD)
What is faith? It is not something we must receive from a religion, nor is it a quality we must abandon in order to be rational. Faith is not the same as belief, writes bestselling author Roger Housden. A nonreligious faith allows us to live with uncertainty, change, and mortality—to embrace life in all its sublime beauty. For the many who self-identify as spiritual but not religious, Housden’s book Keeping the Faith Without a Religion offers us a way to embrace the extraordinary mystery of our lives without resorting to blind dogmatism or nihilistic scientism. He invites us to investigate:
– Faith and belief—how our hunger for certainty and easy answers impedes the growth of a mature spirituality
– Guidance for building a personal faith based on your own inner experience
– How faith in life’s uncertainty can lift us through hard times—even when we know there are no guarantees
– Love, joy, and beauty—what these experiences can teach us about the intelligence of the universe
Today, many of us seek 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 free-thinking seekers—an inspiring call to step beyond the need for one absolute truth and trust ourselves to the unfolding of our singular, extraordinary life.
