Shortlisted for the Australian Christian Book of the Year 2017 award

The church today in its evangelical/missional desire to reach the "spiritual but not religious" and the "nones" is adapting spiritual practices that have their roots in East Asian religions or in disciplines that emerge from New Age/New Spirituality. This book sifts through some of these popular practices that some individual Christians and local churches are adapting but of which others are wary, and asks whether or not they should really be considered off-limits.

Today, some Christians - as part of their own personal growth - and some churches - as part of their desire to reach the 'spiritual but not religious' - are adapting spiritual practices that have their roots in East Asian religions or in disciplines that emerge from New Age and New Spirituality. Other voices within the Church are wary of, and in some cases condemn, involvement with such practices. This book sifts through some of the most popular practices and asks whether or not they should really be considered off-limits for Christians, or incompatible with the way of Jesus. Each chapter provides a brief history of the alternative practice in focus, followed by an assessment of its strengths and weaknesses within a Christian framework, and a case study of a church interacting with the practice. Taboo or To Do? includes a Foreword by John Drane.
