p>There is no doubt that America is in the midst of a spiritual crisis.Millions of people are trying to find meaning in their lives by returning toold-time religions, or by seeking out new cults, fads, channelers, 12-stepprograms, and self-help books. Bill Moyers has called this search forspirituality "the biggest story -- not only of the decade but of the century."Now, Sam Keen, the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Fire in theBelly," addresses this crisis and provides a blueprint for bringingspirituality into everyday life in "Hymns to an Unknown God: Awakening theSpirit in Everyday Life."Using practical examples from his and other people's lives, Keen tells readershow to cut through what he calls the "spiritual bullshit, " and recover thesacred in their love affairs, families, jobs, and politics -- in short, how torecover the "Unknown God." Down-to-earth and articulate, Sam Keen is a popularsocial commentator, philosopher, and teacher. He describes himself as"overeducated at the Ivies, " with degrees from Harvard and Princeton. His workhas been featured in a special Bill Moyers PBS interview, and for over twentyyears he was a consulting editor at "Psychology Today." How to Use Your Spiritual Bullshit Detector: In a world of one-minutesolutions, false spiritual leaders, and instant spirituality, how can you tellwhich beliefs are valid and separate the bogus from the genuine. Sex and the Spirit: Why is it that sex and spirituality are so interconnectedand confusing? Keen explains the conflict between "I want" and "I should, " andtells readers how to integrate sensuality, sexuality and spirituality toexperience truly deep and loving relationships. Consecrating Our Days:Rituals for Living: Keen gives more than a dozensuggestions for personal rituals to remind readers of the sacredness in theireveryday lives, including creating a private place as a personal sanctuary, learning to make time to think deeply, setting aside personal days as times ofcelebration, and more. "Sam Keen is one of our liveliest minds. It's a joy to go with him as aguide to the byways of the soul in the search for greater meaning in life."
