9781602589674: The Ecology of Spirituality

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.

About the Author:

Lucy Bregman is Professor of Religion at Temple University. She is the author of several books, including Preaching Death: The Transformation of Christian Funeral Sermons. She lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Review:

"...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

"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

"... 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

"Bregman evidences keen intellectual intuition and constructive insight in staking out a path upon which others could productively follow and expand."―Daryl Ellis, Vanderbilt University, Practical Matters

"In this masterly overview and analysis of the roots and emergence of spirituality as a prevalent term within multiple contemporary discourses, Lucy Bregman lays out some key insights into the nature and development of spirituality within contemporary Western cultures and offers some important perspectives on what this phenomenon might be, why it has become what it is and what it might mean for society."―John Swinton, Religion and Theology
