Spirituality and the Awakening Self

David G Benner

Spirituality and the Awakening Self

David G Benner

$43.99

Paperback
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, who has spent thirty-five years integrating psychology and spirituality, presents psychological insights in a readable fashion to offer readers a deeper understanding of the self and its spiritual development. Drawing on a broad range of Christian traditions, Benner shows that the transformation of self is foundational to Christian spirituality.

^^This book will appeal to readers interested in:-

  • fresh explorations of spirituality
  • professionals engaged in pastoral care, counseling, and spiritual direction
  • and students in ministry development and spiritual formation courses.
Reflection exercises for individual or group use are included at the end of each chapter.^
