About this title:
Synopsis:
The phrase "I'm spiritual but not religious" has become a cliché. It's easy to find God amid the convenience of self-styled spirituality--but is it possible (and more worthwhile) to search for God through religion?
Minister and celebrated author Lillian Daniel gives a new spin on church with stories of what a life of faith can really be: weird, wondrous, and well worth trying. From a rock-and-roller sexton to a BB gun-toting grandma, a church service attended by animals to a group of unlikely theologians at Sing Sing, Daniel shows us a portrait of church that is flawed, fallible--and deeply faithful. With poignant reflections and sly wit, Daniel invites all of us to step out of ourselves, dare to become a community, and encounter a God greater than we could ever invent.
Humorous and sincere, this is a book about people finding God in the most unexpected of places: prisons, airports, yoga classes, committee meetings, and, strangest of all, right there in church.

About the Author:
Lillian Daniel has served as the Senior Minister of the First Congregational Church of Glen Ellyn, United Church of Christ, in the Chicago area since 2004. An editor at large for Christian Century Magazine, and a contributing editor at Leadership Journal, her work has also appeared in The Huffington Post, Christianity Today, Leadership Journal, Books and Culture, and in The Journal for Preachers. She has also hosted the Chicago-based television show 30 Good Minutes. Her Huffington Post article "Spiritual but Not Religious? Please Stop Boring Me" gained widespread interfaith attention after going viral on the Web. Daniel has taught preaching at Yale Divinity School, Chicago Theological Seminary and the University of Chicago Divinity School. In October 2010 she received the distinguished alumni award from Yale Divinity School for "Distinction in Congregational Ministry." She is the author of two previous books: Tell It Like It Is: Reclaiming the Practice of Testimony, and This Odd and Wondrous Calling: The Public and Private Lives of Two Ministers, and she contributed to Gifts My Mother Gave Me: Thirty-One Women on the Gifts that Mattered Most.

Book Description: Hodder Stoughton General Division, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New ed. 213 x 145 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. People find it comfortable and convenient to create their own version of God-but can they really face the God who created them? The phrase I m spiritual, but not religious has been used so much as a blanket statement of faith that it has become a cliche. Some users have been damaged by particular traditions; others cannot settle for just one. Often religious people - especially if they are open-minded and progressive themselves - don t know how to respond. Lillian Daniel answes the dilemma with real, compelling stories of what a life of faith can truly be: odd, wondrous, God-soaked and worth trying. Here are people looking for God in the midst of everyday life, unashamed to be religious in the full and wonderful sense of the word. Private spiritual life keeps people self-focused and vague, depriving them of centuries of careful religious thought, current debate, and most importantly, a community of support. It is not remarkable to see God in sunsets and mountaintops; what is remarkable is to find God in the midst of fallible human beings. When Spiritual but Not Religious is Not Enough is the book for people who want to find God in nature and in other weird places: prison, airports, yoga classes, committee meetings, and even the weirdest of all places, the local church.
