Publisher's Summary

I am not perfect is a simple statement of profound truth, the first step toward understanding the human condition, for to deny your essential imperfection is to deny yourself and your own humanity. The spirituality of imperfection, steeped in the rich traditions of the Hebrew prophets and Greek thinkers, Buddhist sages and Christian disciples, is a message as timeless as it is timely. This insightful work draws on the wisdom stories of the ages to provide an extraordinary wellspring of hope and inspiration to anyone thirsting for spiritual growth and guidance in these troubled times. Who are we? Why do we so often fall short of our goals for ourselves and others? By seeking to understand our limitations and accept the inevitably of failure and pain, we begin to ease the hurt and move toward a greater sense of serenity and self-awareness.

The Spirituality of Imperfection brings together stories from many spiritual and philosophical paths, weaving past traditions into a spirituality and a new way of thinking and living that works today. It speaks to anyone who yearns to find meaning within suffering. Beyond theory and technique, inside this remarkable audiobook you will find a new way of thinking, a way of living that enables a truly human existence.

    "Love view of spirituality!"

    Being new to AA, I am working on 2nd step where I come to understand what my higher power will be. This book provided a view of spirituality I never heard of before. I started listening to it for a second time right away. Beautiful stories! Great connections between AA approach and other wisdom traditions. So much to gain from this book!

    "Anecdotes galore!"

    I love this book. The stories are very engaging and the premise of imperfect spirituality as the true human condition resonates deeply. Due to the varied stories, the narration could have been more dynamic.

    "Okay"

    Good but not great. Naration was little stuffy in delivery,. At times the writing was a little too gushy. Not terrible, but not terribly transformational either. A solid "C+"

    "Soothing calming stories about life and the rest"

    I better understand how powerful a good story can be. I enjoyed both books and I continue to listen and retell the stories to others. It reminds me of the fact that for the most part we are all perfectly imperfect.
