Presented in partnership with River's Edge.
Grounded in the contemporary and influential Integral Philosophy of Ken Wilber, Paul R. Smith in his book Integral Christianity: The Spirit’s Call to Evolve lays out a provocative understanding of the present and future of Church and Christian Spirituality. For a guide to understanding the now and future church, as well as seeking expansive insights into God, the Trinity, and prayer, reading and discussing this book promises to be enlightening and transforming.
The writings of Paul R. Smith have been enthusiastically endorsed by, among others, Richard Rohr and Ilia Delio.
