Original Faith

Book Note: Original Faith Available . . .
Original Faith: Finding the Interfaith Soul of Progressive Religion and Spirituality has just become available on
Amazon and Target. (For libraries, it’s also in the WorldCat catalog.)

The number of inquiries about the book has gone up lately, so although the press release hasn’t gone out yet and parts of the information on the book’s Amazon page are still being developed, I wanted to let you know.We’re hoping to get an international sales channel that would allow people outside the US to order online without having to pay so much postage, but not sure yet if that can happen.

I truly appreciate your readership here – the level of thoughtfulness that people have brought to these threads has been wonderful.The book covers the whole range of spiritual life and growth as broadly and deeply as I’ve been able to experience and understand it. It was written over a period of twenty-five years, starting from when I was leading a full life, through years of disease progression, and into severe disability – “in sickness and in heath,” as they say. (I guess I was sort of married to it…)

Here are the contents. I believe that the book is likely to have something to offer you wherever you happen to be in your own experience and understanding of what our being here is all about:


Chapter 1: What Love Is

Chapter 2: Despair Under Heaven

Chapter 3: The Fact of Faith

Chapter 4: Stumbling Block: Ego

Chapter 5: Willingness and Practice

Chapter 6: The Nature of Work

Chapter 7: Nature’s Work of Transformation

Chapter 8: Working from World-Center

Chapter 9: Owning the Greater Claim

Afterword: Owning the Darkness
