Product Description

In looking to other religions, Jones explores some of the ways in which Christianity and Buddhism might learn from each other. While many books deal with specific spiritual practices, Jones looks at the general question of the role of spiritual practice in Christian life, especially from a psychological perspective. His interest in Buddhism puts Jesus and the Buddha in counterpoint. Ultimately, The Mirror of God gives the reader a deeper insight into the social context of spiritual practice as well as providing a mirror to the contemporary culture that surrounds us.

Publisher's Description

What are the benefits of being a spiritual person? This is the question that James Jones explores in his newest book, The Mirror of God. Jones contends that true religious belief is not a passive process and that one must work hard towards believing in God through acts such as prayer, meditation and communal worship. He explores the boundaries between psychotherapy and religious practice, looks at what Christians might learn from Buddhists and shows their effects on the body and mind. Jones is a psychologist as well as a professor of religion and, ultimately, he provides a blueprint for worship that's smart, effective and grounded in the real lives we all live.

Author Bio

James W. Jones is a Professor of Religion and Psychology at Rutgers University.

Editorial Reviews

...a welcome report from the fields of religious, and clinical, practice.
Jones uniquely blends his experience...to compellingly affirm the interdependence of mind, body, and spirit.
Reminiscent of M. Scott Peck and Thomas Moore, Jones weaves a spiritual fable for our times. . . Smoothly written and gracefully argued.
A beautiful, wise and profoundly moving book.
