About this product
- DescriptionIt s easy to get high on God in America. But is this good religion? In a compelling follow-up to her memoir, Girl at the End of the World, Elizabeth Esther explores how religious fervor can become religious addiction. The evidence is everywhere. In families who inexplicably choose to harm their children in order to abide by cultic church doctrine. But in ordinary believers too who use God the same way addicts use drugs or alcohol to numb pain, alter their mood, or simply to escape the realities of this messy, unpredictable thing called life. If you ve ever wondered how a religion that preaches freedom and love can produce judgmental and unkind followers; if you ve ever felt captive to the demanding God of your own childhood; if you ve struggled to find contentment without needing ather emotional hit from a life-changing conference or mountain-top experience, then Spiritual Sobriety is for you. The author, who grew up in a hyper-controlling church cult, will help you find hope and rebirth in the ruins of disillusioned faith. Filled with stories and warm, practical advice, Spiritual Sobriety offers a gentle path out of the desperate cycles of craving-euphoria-hangover and into a freer, clean-and-sober faith practice.
- Author BiographyElizabeth Esther is the author of Girl at The End of the World: my escape from fundamentalism in search of faith with a future. She lives in Southern California with her husband and their five children.
