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.

Review 1 for Soulful Spirituality: Becoming Fully Alive and Deeply Human
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.
