The Golden Rule of 'do unto others has often been called the essence of religion. But Fred Howard's own spiritual journey takes a decidedly less traveled path when he faces a situation where the Golden Rule simply isn t adequate. Embarking on a deep spiritual quest away from literal Christianity and into the New Thought movements of the 1980s and 1990s, Howard eventually comes full circle to reclaim his Christian identity. Armed with a fresh perspective on his old life, he now sees the doctrines and tenets with new eyes.In Transforming Faith: Stories of Change from a Lifelong Spiritual Seeker, Howard explores this fresh insight through the five areas of imagination, faith, compassion, God, and Christianity. Using the time-tested tradition of conveying wisdom through story, Howard encourages you to develop a transforming faith one that not only leads to changes in your life, but also one that grows into new understandings of the reality of God's presence.Following in the footsteps of M. Scott Peck's The Road Less Traveled, this book offers a fresh and sometimes unconventional guide to understanding your spirituality.
