a pomo must read,
This review is from: The Seeker's Way: Cultivating the Longings of a Spiritual Life (Hardcover)
Dave Flemming's The Seeker's Way is a postmodern book about the faith journey. Not catering only to the Christian faith tradition, although he embraces it, Flemming's words are for seekers of all faith traditions.
Former Pastor, Now Spiritual Advisor and Leadership Coach, Dave Flemming holds an earned doctorate in organizational leadership from the University of Phoenix. Flemming encourages readers to embrace uncertainty, chaos, and questions. His words are inspiring to those who find themselves on the path of a learner.
Drawing allusions and references from Buddist monks, Hindus, and Muslims, as well as Christian luminaries such as Brother Lawrence and St. Augustine, Flemming encourages believers to get into relationship with others from different faith traditions. Establishing a seeker's group is one way, and to that end, Flemming includes an epilogue on starting a seeker's group.
Those who embrace emergent voices and are not afraid of other faith traditions will find this book salve to the soul. Jesus in the lotus position will not encourage staunch traditionalists. It will, however, reveal much to those who can endure the discomfort of facing other faith traditions. I highly recommend this book for seekers of all faiths and those longing to embrace the emergent voice. It is an excellent read, one I can't wait to read again.
