The Spirituality of Imperfection
By Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham; Paperback 294 pages
I am not perfect" is a simple statement of profound truth, the first step toward understanding the human condition - for to deny your essential imperfection is to deny your own humanity. This illuminating book brings together the wisdom stories of many traditions and faiths, from Hebrew prophets to Buddhist sages and Christian teachers, and from ancient Greeks to the modern insights of A.A. Through thoughtful commentary and more than one hundred vividly told tales, it enables us to accept the inevitability of pain and failure so that we can ease the hurt and move toward serenity and wholeness. THE SPIRITUALITY OF IMPERFECTION speaks to anyone who yearns to find meaning- and even joy - within suffering.
