    Befriending Our Desires

    , , , ,
    Desire is at the heart of what it is to be human. The power of desire, while embodied and sensuous, is God-given and the key to all human spirituality. Humanity is blessed with a deep longing that is infinite in extent and can only ultimately be satisfied in God. Befriending Our Desires portrays the intimate connection between desire and the spiritual journey. Drawing on Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, Christian spiritual classics (with some reference to Buddhist spirituality), poetry, and other literature, plus personal and pastoral experience, Philip Sheldrake explores the role of desire in relation to God, prayer, sexuality, making choices, and responding to change.

    Spirituality and History: Questions of Interpretation and Method

    ‘For anyone wrestling with the much used and little defined concept of spirituality this book is a must. By setting spiritualities in their historical context Philip Sheldrake helps us to grasp the intensity of past religious lives while recognising their distance from our own. He therefore enables us to dust off and demystify the term, drawing inspiration from the past without being enslaved by it’

    Shap Working Party on World Religions

    ‘Philip Sheldrake is a master of lucid exposition …. I cannot remember when I last read through so much serious and carefully nuanced material, so digestibly arranged in so short a space.’

    The Month

     

    ‘This study challenges traditional approaches, creates an alternative perspective, introduces readers to relevant contemporary literature, and begins to recover some of the hitherto neglected strands of spirituality…. The methodology is what makes the book so attractive, but the challenge to long-accepted assumptions is what makes it required reading for all theological students everywhere.’
