For the millions of us who can't believe the conflicting and confusing claims of the mainstream churches, there seems to be a stark choice: either sacrifice your hard-won common sense or remain in permanent exile from religious life.
Seeing With Your Ears offers hope to those who find themselves stuck in this modern dilemma. Drawing upon the wisdom of many cultures, its powerful series of reflections cuts through the smokescreen of tradition to show how faith can be regained without putting the logical mind in cold storage. Using the insights of teachers, philosophers, and psychologists from all ages, its gritty and entertaining essays on sex, death, and purposeful living invite readers to use their own experiences to find the way to a personal spirituality. It speaks directly to those among us who would like to believe in something beyond the pedestrian realities of life, but who, up to now, thought it was impossible.
