Experiencing Spirituality: Finding Meaning Through Storytelling

ExperiencingSpirituality150x226By Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham Jeremy P. Tarcher    

Penguin    

The authors of the book The Spirituality of Imperfection continue their exploration of spirituality using storytelling of everyday life and experience. They want readers to learn that spirituality can be fun. They say that they do this “by living fully humanly.” They discuss the art of storytelling and the role of the storyteller. To do that, they use stories from a variety of countries, cultures, and religions. For example, in one short story, it is explained that “wisdom comes only when you stop looking for it and start truly living the life the Creator intended for you.”

The book is separated into segments describing, among other topics, community, listening, forgiveness, humor, memory, prayer, and recovery. They can be read out of order or experienced sequentially as a whole. Either way, they will provide the reader with thoughtful essays and stories for consideration and inspiration.
