Publisher's Description

Spirituality has an indispensable role to play in the expression of our humanity. However, spiritual practices can sometimes make us less, not more, authentically human. We may be good Christians, but we aren't good human beings. How can we ensure that our spiritual journey is conducted in a way that allows us to become fully alive and deeply human?

David Benner has spent thirty-five years integrating psychology and spirituality. Here he presents an expansive, psychologically informed understanding of spirituality, probing the contrasts between soulful and soulless spirituality, deep and shallow religion, and healthy and unhealthy relationships with God to affirm the vital role of human development in the spiritual journey. Benner then suggests soulful practices for cultivating the Christian spiritual life.

This book will appeal to readers seeking depth and substance in their quest for authentic spirituality. It will also be a helpful resource for mental health professionals and spiritual directors. Reflection questions and exercises for individual or group use are included at the end of each chapter.

Endorsements

"Soulful Spirituality is a feast of encouraging wisdom that nourishes soul and spirit. In inviting language, images, and narratives, David Benner describes a way of living that is integrating and inspiring--a hearty blend of psychology, theology, and spirituality for all of us who seek to mature and thrive." --Susan S. Phillips, executive director and professor of sociology and Christianity, New College Berkeley; author, Candlelight: Illuminating the Art of Spiritual Direction

"Soulful Spirituality embodies the inseparable invitations of the spiritual and human journeys. Dr. Benner's writing is grounded in long years of research and practice at the intersections of human development, psychotherapy, and spiritual direction alongside his own desire to persist in becoming all that God intends. Soulful Spirituality stirs the reader's longing for connectedness, fulfillment, aliveness, and wholeness that is uniquely possible through intentional cooperation with God. Benner provides solid theological and developmental foundations for the practices he offers to support growth and deepening. Soulful Spirituality invites readers to embrace life as it is and to be open to God in the midst of ordinary/extraordinary reality. It is filled with possibilities that evoke pondering and prayer."--Jeannette A. Bakke, author, Holy Invitations: Exploring Spiritual Direction

"I believe this will be David G. Benner's most important book. Some will find it controversial. But many more, I believe, will find it hope- and life-giving. Soulful Spirituality moves the reader beyond beliefs and practices to the discovery of the rich resources of an in-bodied Christian spirituality, resources for helping you become the unique and whole human being you were intended to be."--Gary W. Moon, vice president and integration chair, Richmont Graduate University; author, Apprenticeship with Jesus

    Another great book by David Benner. I can't get enough of this guy. He does a great job of explaining psycological issues and spiritual issues and how they transect, and then he delivers what the title says - how to become fully alive and deeply human. I have been both deeply moved and deeply changed by what the author has shared. It's not light reading but it's been life changing for me. Check out his "Opening to God" book as well. It was also transforming for me.
