Thomas Moore: The Paradox of Modern Religion
Thomas Moore is a bestselling spiritual author who has been—at various points of his life—a university professor, psychotherapist, musician, and a monk. “There’s no mistaking that the world is changing rapidly . . .” says Sounds True producer Kriste Peoples regarding this week’s selection for Producer’s Pick. “More and more, we’re questioning our faith—wondering whether our old-time religions can serve us wholly today.” These world-spanning and immediate issues are addressed by Thomas Moore in the audio program A Personal Spirituality: Finding Your Own Way to a Meaningful Life. In this week’s excerpt, Thomas asserts that the swiftly changing face of our culture does indeed present a great challenge—but also represents a path toward a more intense, inclusive, and substantive spirituality.
