Review: Spirituality for the Rest of Us: A Down-to-Earth Guide to Knowing God by Larry Osborne

Synopsis: If you don't fit the mold. If you're tired of adjusting to other people's definitions of spirituality. If traditional spiritual disciplines just aren't working for you. If all the standard answers aren't enough. But you deepest desire if to know God More...

I read this book for the book club at church. I was pleased with what it had to say - mostly it gave some relief for the relentless pursuit to be spiritual. Osborne points out that much of what we do as Christians is self-imposed and does nothing to move us closer to God. Most of it is based on our values, not God's. His writing is clear, easy prose filled with Bible verses and stories. His work would be easy to read for almost anyone. I recommend if you are having a problem "keeping up" with all the things that "Christians are suppose to do". Some of his thoughts need to be taken with a grain of salt, but he makes execellent points worth pondering.
