Review:

Radical Spirit offers dispatches from Generation X, the maligned and misunderstood generation of Americans born between 1960 and 1980. Walking in the spiritual wake of self-inflated baby boomers, this generation has much to offer to the discussion of modern spirituality. Visionary contributors, such as Julia Butterfly Hill (The Legacy of Luna), Eric Davis (a contributing editor to Wired magazine), and Soren Gordhamer (Just Say Om!), are up-front and realistic, and tell vivid personal stories. "It's no accident that the freshest spiritual writing these days is largely autobiographical and confessional," writes Erik Davis, in "Meditating in Sensurround." "When it comes to spirituality, that amorphous and easily misheard inner call, we have come to trust experience, however mundane and confused, more than belief systems or philosophical reflection."

These life experiences are plentiful, occasionally cynical, and almost always soul-touching. Stephen Dinan, the anthology's editor, writes about his first serious meditation retreat in India. Scientist Albert Wong writes about watching a sunset in Jerusalem while whistling the words to a Supertramp song and pondering "Why am I here?" Rabbi Daniel Kohn speaks to finding "Kabbalah and Aikido." This is a highly recommended anthology for all ages and all spiritual orientations--one that offers radical and ageless messages of enduring love, hope, and optimism. --Gail Hudson
