Spirituality and the Awakening Self : The Sacred Journey of Transformation
Being human is a lifelong journey of becoming. This journey defines our humanity, for it is a journey toward our source and our fulfillment, described in Christian theology as union with God. If we remain open to God as our sense of self awakens, we experience a deeper consciousness of being in him. The self that emerges during this process is larger, more enlightened, and whole.
David Benner has spent thirty-five years integrating psychology and spirituality. Following his acclaimed book Soulful Spirituality, Benner offers readers a deeper understanding of the self and its spiritual development in Spirituality and the Awakening Self. Drawing on a broad range of Christian traditions, he shows that the transformation of self is foundational to Christian spirituality.
This book will appeal to professors and students in ministry development and spiritual formation courses; professionals engaged in pastoral care, counseling, and spiritual direction; and readers interested in a psychologically grounded, fresh exploration of Christian spirituality. Questions and answers for individual or group use are included at the end of each chapter.
