An inclusive and open exploration of our connection with something greater than ourselves and our search for the spiritual - a provocative and accessible read for those making up their own minds about God, faith, spirituality, and the nature of belief in 21st-century life.

Imagine the world we would live in if we dared to see all of life as sacred - unconditionally.

At a time when religion is increasingly seen as a cause of prejudice and division, or as irrelevant to our most pressing concerns, the eternal truths of a genuinely inclusive spiritual wisdom have never been more urgently needed or sought.

In Seeking the Sacred, Stephanie Dowrick invites us to go beyond cultural divisions and religious clich and to discover what makes our lives sacred, satisfying and meaningful. Weaving personal stories - including her own - with an inspired vision of life's most healing possibilities, she shows how the sacred can transform the way we understand and value life, changing forever how we interact with others and care for ourselves.

This is a book for the spiritually curious as well as those already engaged with the deeper questions.

Richly hopeful and encouraging, Seeking the Sacred unravels some of our most complex contemporary dilemmas and speaks to the heart of our deepest yearnings.
