Spirituality Without Jargon

Dr.Saint-Laurent covers an enormous territory in remarkably few words (less than 300 pages). He accomplishes this not by reduction but with intelligent economy of language: this is a jargon-free book. Saint-Laurent crosses major religous boundries without stepping on toes, and reveals in clear language the theme and variations of human spirituality. Spirituality and World Religions functions as an enjoyable read,a college text,an outline,a reference,and a source of enlightenment. This book is a true example of the fact that the intellect and the soul are highly compatible.

George Saint-Laurent has written a poneering study on the inner meaning of the world’s major religions. The author explores how beievers may find in each of them a guide to enhance their lives, so long as they are totally committed to the tenets of their faith. There is a great deal of information in these chapters that will enable a reader in one community to come into contact with less familiar traditions of other religions. The book is at its best when it presents insights into the relationship between God and humans, which the great religious traditions promote in their several ways.
