Erlandson articulates the growing frustration that many people have with Christianity. He simultaneously shows how you don’t need a church to create a challenging and life-changing new path based on one of the world’s great wisdom texts--the Bible--and rooted in its simple call to Love God and love neighbor.About the Author:
Sven Erlandson, M.Div., B.A. (US Air Force Academy and Augsburg College), Founder/Principal of BadassCounseling.com (Manhattan, NYC, and Stamford, CT) is an internationally-respected author of over five books, TV/radio personality, motivational speaker, graduate school/undergraduate lecturer in spirituality and athletics lecturer, former NCAA Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, former Division I athlete, record-setting power lifter and SERE-trained military and sailplane pilot. He was the first pastor ever in the Lutheran Church to be hired as a full-time Sports and Recreation Pastor. He has worked with thousands of athletes and teams of all levels -- from Olympians and pros to MMA fighters and marathoners, as well as coaches, universities, churches and hungry spiritual seekers. Erlandson excels at translating spiritual concepts into the language of Wall Street CEOs, high-level athletes as well as the non-religious, the spiritual but not religious people, and even avowed atheists. Erlandson literally wrote the book – the very first book – on the spiritual but not religious movement in America (Spiritual But Not Religious: A Call to Religious Revolution in America), making him the de facto father of what is now the largest spiritual-religious movement in US history, and is cited by Wikipedia for his pioneering work in this area of spirituality. He has also written The 7 Evangelical Myths, as well as numerous articles on spirituality, politics, culture, and parenting. His high-powered and counter-intuitive approach to spiritual life has been inspiring younger generations for decades.
