Where My Soul Lives
by Ruth H. Judy
Ruth Judy examines the experience of those in our culture who are following an unconventional path to and with God. Based on interviews with fifty men and women, the book looks at people who have a strong heritage to Christianity and who continue to draw upon its wisdom and guidance. While many participants remain fully involved and committed to the institutional church (three are ministers), others have stepped away from it as they’ve listened to God’s call. All of them see themselves as nontraditional in some way, most often in the area of spiritual development. Their repeated theme is “Being outside the lines is what has brought me closest to God.”
…especially interesting to those who lead the church as pastors or Christian educators as it provides insights about these journeys into more mystical and spiritual practices.
