Book Description

This book is written to “the spiritually inclined” who respect the scriptures, yet seek more freedom in their spiritual pursuits. It is for those who want to know the roots of the teachings they now adhere to.

Hopefully, the chapters that follow will help to add fresh insight to the spirituality of old and give new hope for the spirituality of today. It will attempt to touch upon many things that directly relate to where we are today in our expanded quest for a satisfying spirituality.

It will attempt to draw upon the old and the new and benefit from them both. The touchstone is in the verse below spoken by Jesus of Nazareth the prophet of Galilee.


“ Then said he unto them ,therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old” Matthew 13:52

Format:Paperback
It is a pleasure to come across a book that plainly distinguishes religiosity from spirituality. The author is obviously well versed in the scriptures, however this book is not simply about the quoting the Bible. The author takes the scriptures as a foundation, breaks them down to the reader, explaining history and context, and then puts it's all into perspective for our day and time. From the very beginning he alerts us to his intention to empower us with phrases like "We do not have to go to the scriptures in order to talk to God" which from the beginning takes the guilt and shame out of those awakening from purely religious experience to a spiritual existence. His tone is matter of fact but not preachy or condescending! It became clear during my read that I was being taken on a journey from religiosity to spirituality, and I very much appreciated the presentation. This is a very informative book for both the Seeker and the "seasoned Christian" who wants a deeper meaning to their faith. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book for the Times of Now November 2, 2010
Format:Paperback
Rev. Thurman L. Faison is an accomplished man.
He is well versed in the Bible. Rev. Faison
has a broad acquaintance with religion.
He is like a "4-star Genral" in his overall
subject "To The Spiritually Inclined".
I like his book very much. There are surely many
good sermon "starter" ideas which he
clearly sets forth to the reader which ideas
can be invaluable to a minister or to anyone
reading his book. It is a book for the times
we live in as many are searching and asking the
question of religion "Is that all there is?"
Be assured there is more! Thurman's book can
prove to be a valuable companion to you on your
spiritual quest and spiritual journey.

But you will need to be asking, seeking and/or knocking.
It's like a breath of fresh air to read Mr. Faison's call to action on our part. It's about time we breathe new meaning into old things and old thoughts. The book is easy to read and he knows the scriptures and speaks them with authority. It is a most pleasurable read. I had a hard time stopping and putting it down.
I felt re-encouraged to apply Jesus' teaching to my life. And even if you don't know all of the stories from many years of reading the Bible, attending church and Sunday school lessons as I do, I think you'll still think it sounds fresh and interesting. I was much encouraged to step out of my 'boat' or comfort zone, keep my faith and not become distracted by my natural surroundings. I learned the key is keeping my spiritual focus in the right place.
Thurman reminds us that our minds, thoughts, imaginations and expectations provide the powerful catalyst for the supernatural. We need to be involved in our own healing. It requires aspiration and/or desperation, and definitely expectation. What a wonderful description of faith and explanation of how it's brought forth.
Thank you Thurman Faison! A hard task well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars An insightful read February 13, 2010
Format:Paperback
This book is one of the best I've ever read on the subject. Mr. Faison very clearly states what many people, including myself, think and believe. His insights and commentary are thoughtful, and well stated in plain, concise language, making this book very easy to read as well as enlightening. A job very well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very insightful August 12, 2010
Format:Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Having been raised in the Assemblies of God/Pentecostal Church community, as I became an adult, I was aware of what it meant to be religious, but I didn't understand what it meant to be "spiritual." While in grad school, I was faced with very stressful situations and encounters, so I turned to various self-help books and other resources to assist with finding balance while facing day to day challenges. A lot of these books, though not religious in nature talked about being spiritual and spirituality. I think that Thurman Faison does a wonderful job of hi-light the spiritual messages and lessons referenced in biblical Judeo-Christian teaching and cleverly points out that our sense of spirituality is intrinsically tied to our personal relationship with God; that biblical or religious teachings can serve as inspiration as opposed to absolute law. I also enjoyed his emphasis on the use of faith as a cornerstone of every spiritual pursuit. I found this book to be very encouraging and inspirational.
