This book is a must for everyone who has thought at some time I must have lost my faith, or My faith is not what it should be. It is for all those who blame themselves for being unable to feel certian about the religious opinions given them as a necessary beliefs to hold. It is also for those who are concerned about the faith is a choice, often with difficult features, and never a thing: but a living process. Anyone interested in exploring this deeply personal and valued-laden aspect of life will find ideas to ponder and fresh understandings to consider.

Mary Jo Meadow is professor of psychology and religion at Mankato State University, Mankato, Minnesota.From Booklist:
In what she calls a "spiritual psychology," Meadow distinguishes between faith and belief. Though spiritual psychology is technically redundant, the term does serve to focus attention on a definition of psyche that predates psychology as an academic discipline. By distinguishing faith from belief, Meadow provides a basis for thinking of faith as a species of knowledge rather than opinion (though she sometimes seems inclined to abandon both in favor of will). She proposes levels of knowing that correspond to progressive spiritual deepening and personal liberation informed by Buddhism and Hinduism as well as Christianity. The goal is openness, and Meadow's popular account will appeal to readers who share that goal as well as perhaps readers who have reluctantly come to equate religion with its opposite.
