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 t ...more

As an individual without any traditional religious training or affiliation with any religious group, I found Rev. Faison’s book an inspiration. His words depict what I’ve always felt in my heart; that our relationship with God is personal and on an individual level, that we do not have to go through a mediator in order to speak with God. That we can speak to Him directly anywhere and at any time in our own words. That God is there for all of His children throughout the world, no matter the relig

You may not have to be ‘Spiritually Inclined’ to read this…
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

I am so happy that I won a "First Reads" copy of To The Spiritually Inclined by Thurman L. Faison -- thank you to both Thurman and Goodreads for this fantastic book!!

I just finished reading To The Spiritually Inclined, but the truth is that I will never actually be finished with it, because I plan on rereading this book many times. There are so many important messages that are shared by Mr. Faison, and I will want (and need) constant reminders of these messages.

The author, Thurman Faison, is a f

This was a very difficult book for me to get through because, despite its author's claims to have something to say to everyone, regardless of their religious perspective, I found it simply didn't speak to me. It was too overtly Christian in perspective, laced with many bibilical examples. It just wasn't for me, as witness how long it took me to finish it. I just kept picking it up and putting it down again, despite its having come to me as a First Reads free book.

This was a Giveaway book for me. It was not what I had expected, I thought it would be more like a devotional. But once I got past that, it was an interesting read. If you are just interested in short blurbs this is not for you. If you want to look inward, by all means, pick up this book.
