After a century or more of convincing ourselves that intelligent people should be ‘secular’, it is now trendy to be ‘spiritual’. Why the sudden change? And what do we mean by being ‘spiritual’? John Drane presents a whirlwind tour of the phenomenon of cultural change as it is being experienced in the West, identifying the challenges and opportunities this presents to the Christian church. He examines the question of whether human beings are intrinsically programmed to be ‘spiritual’, offers theological reflection on the ‘New Age’ phenomenon and focuses on how the Christian community can connect with spiritual seekers in today’s world.
