Publisher's Summary

What is faith? It is not something we must receive from a religion, nor is it a quality we must abandon in order to be rational. "Faith is not the same as belief," writes best-selling author Roger Housden. "A nonreligious faith allows us to live with uncertainty, change, and mortality - to embrace life in all its sublime beauty." For the many who self-identify as "spiritual but not religious", Housden’s audiobook Keeping the Faith Without a Religion offers us a way to embrace the extraordinary mystery of our lives without resorting to blind dogmatism or nihilistic scientism. He invites us to investigate:

Faith and belief - how our hunger for certainty and easy answers impedes the growth of a mature spirituality
Guidance for building a personal faith based on your own inner experience
How faith in life’s uncertainty can lift us through hard times - even when we know there are no guarantees
Love, joy, and beauty - what these experiences can teach us about the intelligence of the universe
Today, many of us seek a new approach to spirituality that honors both the rational and the mystical in equal measure. With Keeping the Faith Without a Religion, Roger Housden offers a guidebook for free-thinking seekers - an inspiring call to step beyond the need for one absolute truth and trust ourselves to the unfolding of our singular, extraordinary life.
