Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Faith. It's a word loaded with promise and controversy. It's a word often misunderstood. We're tried and tested, some days feeling that everything is right with the world, some days feeling lost and alone. Maybe we think that the innocent, lucky few have faith, and those more worldly couldn't possibly. Or, that we have to give up independence to attain it.

Stripping away negative conceptions that dismiss faith as being divisive or requiring blind adherence to a belief system, Sharon Salzberg offers discerning wisdom on understanding faith as a healing quality, a refuge that can be nurtured in us all. In her beautifully written book we find that faith is neither blind nor ignorant. Salzberg shows how to combine devotion and the intellect to develop a genuine ease with ourselves and the world.

Synopsis:

Stripping away negative conceptions that dismiss faith as being divisive, one of America's most beloved meditation teachers shows readers how to develop trust in themselves and in life.
