Chapters 6 and 7 redeem the book. "Conversion reorients our way of seeing, thinking, feeling, judging, and acting," says Gula. This is what AA suggests about a spiritual awakening, and what Practice These Principles makes explicit and develops into a concrete and comprehensive account of how we can change and grow spiritually, morally, and emotionally.
One of my required textbooks for my Moral Theology course. I loved it! Author did a great job demonstrating how leading a moral life is really about living out of the abundance of being loved by God unconditionally resulting in actions that make life richer for everyone. Love, love, love the connection between morality and spirituality!
