Is faith meant only for churchgoers? At a time when more and more people are identifying themselves as "spiritual but not religious," there is a need for a clear, non-dogmatic guide to finding one's own path of transformation. Originally published in 1995 and changing the lives of thousands ever since, this concise and eloquent volume offers a vision of a "practical faith" that will benefit anyone regardless of their religious (or irreligious) beliefs. In four lucid steps - Releasing Guilt, Gathering Trust, Practicing Patience, and Learning Transcendence - D. Patrick Miller reveals a path to greater peace, perseverance, and dedication in the midst of everyday life. NOW IN HARDBACK FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 20 YEARS.
