9780006281733: Shopping for God: A Sceptic's Search for Value in the Spiritual Marketplace

This title is Roland Howard's quest for a spirituality strong enough to cope with our cynical post-modern consumer culture. On the way, he has undertaken to guide us through the multitude of religious possibilities, from the weird to the ridiculous. Some search for truth in the rural lifestyle, some even live completely isolated from the modern world. But can such retreat be truly fulfilling? Others simply serve the community, working to save the homeless and the lost, as the faithful have always done. There are even those who embrace the modern world, seeking God in cyberspace and in rave clubs with a different focus. Roland Howard explores them all, with one eye on the experiences of their members, and one eye on the way they have influenced each other, with New Age belief systems taking inspiration from a variety of sources, ancient and modern. Can we "pick and mix" our path to spirituality.
