Much writing on Integral theory is brilliant but dry. This book is anything but. Myth, poetry, and mystical humor infuse the text with a feeling of intimacy and humanity. The stories and examples are wonderful.
I believe that Integral Theory, and, along with Dr. James Fowler and many others, working with and understanding stages of development is the answer to why there is so much dissension in American Religion, especially now with the huge division issues over inclusion issues of the LBGT community. Just as the Meyers/Briggs typology gave corporate America (and others) an understanding of styles that affect interpersonal relations, Integral offers that possibility as well. People are simply at different stages of spiritual development over what or how they see, interpret and contextualize scripture. I suspect that this book will become one of the foundational textbooks about what's possible in creating a Faith Community with this model - affording congregants an opportunity to map out the developmental levels for themselves and move towards greater spiritual awareness and freedom.
I'm hoping to start a study group on this book in my area.
