Young spiritual leaders are beginning to remove the reasons why
so many of us have kept religion at arm's length.

"Spiritual sagacity does not belong only to seniors like Mother Teresa and Dorothy Day, Martin Buber and Abraham Joshua Heschel, the veteran Desmond Tutu and the aging Dalai Lama. Let's hear from a generation that is marked by new experiences."
‰ÛÓfrom the Preface by Martin E. Marty

By transforming our faith traditions in light of today's increasing diversity, the search for community, the Internet and our changing lifestyles, these young, visionary spiritual leaders are helping to create the new spirituality.

Ten contributors, most in their mid-thirties, span the spectrum of religious traditions‰ÛÓProtestant, Catholic, Jewish, Unitarian, Buddhist‰ÛÓand offer their "visions," bold spiritual manifestos, for transforming our faith communities and our lives.

Hear how one Catholic priest proclaims "all religion and spirituality ought to be zesty, passionate, rich and deep"; how one rabbi serves a "congregation" on the web for Microsoft and rides in squad cars on drug busts in New York City; how a self-described "Zen priest" is serving an Episcopal church in Alaska; and how a talented young woman lives her "wild and precious life" changing the world as a nun.

These stories, and others, will challenge your assumptions about what religion is‰ÛÓand isn't.
