Theology & Philosophy of Religion
With candour and irreverent humour, Dan Wakefield's Spiritually Incorrect shows that there is no one path to achieving spiritual fulfilment. Part memoir and part essay, Wakefield's reflections break through the barriers that have been placed on the path to spiritual fulfilment, discussing the importance of breaking rules in order to carve out an independent and unique path to achieve the attainment of a spiritual life.
In an age of political correctness, the award-winning author, raises controversial questions about spirituality:
Why is poverty sacred, wealth profane?
Can a coffee house be a sacred space?
Does yoga make you a Hindu?
Can a man pray in public and still be 'macho'?
Does eating a steak really taint your soul?
Who in our lives and our modern day world deserves to be canonized as a saint?
His exploration of these questions is, in essence, a quest to free the spiritual world from pretension, anxiety and the endless rules that dictate an individual's relationship with religion.
