In The Ecology of Spirituality, Lucy Bregman surveys the many and varied religious, psychological, and sociological definitions of spirituality on offer. Spirituality has been made and remade many times over in the hope of fitting it to some new cultural need. Bregman argues that a better understanding of spirituality is instead rooted in specific professions and practices, and she demonstrates that it is not an irrevocably ambiguous pop cultural phenomenon, but is embodied in historic virtues and practices of a craft.

Review:

A skeptic and scholar with a sense of humor and deep insight, Lucy Bregman takes on the mission of parsing the indefinable...

(Dr. Terry R. Bard, Rabbi, Managing Editor, JPCP, Inc.)

... Bregman brings a sharp wit and special expertise in religious studies to the analysis of spirituality as a concept.

(Kelly Bulkeley, Visiting Scholar, Graduate Theological Union, and author of Dreaming in the World's Religions)

...a stunning intellectual tour of a most important cultural development in global culture―the wild spreading of the concept of spirituality far beyond its original boundaries within 'religions'...

(Christopher Ross, Associate Professor of Psychology and Religion, Wilfrid Laurier University)

... Bregman once called spirituality a useful glow word in search of a meaning. In this book she shows where the glow comes from and the meanings to which it has been attached.

(Dennis Klass, author of The Spiritual Lives of Bereaved Parents and co-author of Dead but Not Lost: Grief Narratives in Religious Traditions)
