Young spiritual leaders are beginning to remove the reasons why so many of us have kept religion at arm's length. By transforming our faith traditions in light of today's increasing diversity, the search for community, the Internet and our changing lifestyles, these young, visionary spiritual leaders are helping to create the new spirituality.
Ten contributors, most in their mid-thirties, span the spectrum of religious traditions--Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Unitarian, Buddhist--and offer their 'visions,' bold spiritual manifestos, for transforming our faith communities and our lives.
Hear how one Catholic priest proclaims 'all religion and spirituality ought to be zesty, passionate, rich and deep'; how one rabbi serves a 'congregation' on the web for Microsoft and rides in squad cars on drug busts in New York City; how a self-described 'Zen priest' is serving an Episcopal church in Alaska; and how a talented young woman lives her 'wild and precious life' changing the world as a nun.
These stories, and others, will challenge our assumptions about what religion is--and isn't.
