MEDIA REVIEWS
"Contemporary Spiritualities is a welcome addition to the body of knowledge concerning the diversity of communities that organise both individual and communal life founded around the centrality of the sacred....the volume offers a wide range of religious and spiritual experience encompassing both individuals and communities...There is plenty to ponder in this volume..."
International Journal of Children's Spirituality, 2002
"The volume [...] demonstrates that the spiritual is essential to understanding human behaviour . . . It also opens a chink in the curtain between the canonically religious and the implicitly spiritual. The Religious Studies of the last two centuries may prove to have been the preparation for the investigation of such secularity."
Journal of Contemporary Religion 17.2 (2002)
"There is a lot of useful material here: readers looking for an introduction to Taize, the Society for Krishna Consciousness, the Amish, or figures such as Merton, Griffiths or the Dalai Lama, will find this book helpful. The second half of the book also stimulates to reflection on how to live a communal faith within post-modern culture. May of the issues it raises are vital ones: feminism, the nature of spiritual experience, how faith communities work, inter-faith relations, and the connection between prayer and social justice."
David Keen, Yeovil ANVIL 19.3, 2002
