Rediscovering Reverence : The Meaning of Faith in a Secular World, Hardback Book

Rediscovering Reverence : The Meaning of Faith in a Secular World Hardback


Drawing on familiar experiences as well as aspects of western and eastern spiritual traditions, Heintzman argues that religious practice is rooted in two basic ways human beings act in the world.

It is therefore an element in the structure of the human spirit, not a phase in its history.

Explaining the meaning of religious practice in contemporary language, Rediscovering Reverence is addressed to anyone who wants to explore the meaning and promise of a religious life. A unique and thoughtful meditation on the role of reverence in everyday life, Rediscovering Reverence presents new perspectives on modern faith, religion, and both personal and societal well-being.
