The headlines are clear: every year more Americans leave organised religion as people disaffiliate and the nation becomes more religiously diverse. Diana Butler Bass argues that what appears to be a decline actually signals a major transformation in how people understand and experience God. The distant God of conventional religion has given way to a more intimate sense of the sacred that saturates the world.
Grounded explores this cultural turn as Bass unpacks how people are finding new spiritual ground through a God who resides in the world with us. People are connecting with God through the environment in which we live. Grounded guides readers through our contemporary spiritual habitat by paying attention to a God who animates creation and community. It observes and reports a radical change in the way many people practise faith. Readers are invited to join this emerging spiritual revolution, find a revitalised expression of faith, and change the world.
