A New Age Christian – My Spiritual Journey
A NEW AGE CHRISTIAN: My Spiritual Journey is a "first of its kind" spiritual autobiography in which Detweiler bridges the gap between traditional Christianity and New Age spirituality in ways that promote healing of the anger and disillusionment millions of spiritual seekers are presently experiencing.
Integrated into the account of her fascinating personal adventures on the spiritual Path are well-documented answers to questions such as: If God is Love, then why...? Have I lived before? Is astrology sacred--or taboo? Is hell. as a place of eternal punishment, biblical? Did Jesus have to die in order for humanity to be forgiven? Are we gods--as Jesus taught? Who is Jesus--really?
Inspirational, courageous, honest, loving, and at times heartrending, Detweiler's quest confirms her bottom line theological statement: God is Love.
