Synopsis: A timeless argument for the place of mystical religion in today’s world, from "the perfect guide for a course correction in life" (Deepak Chopra).

Drawing on his experiences as a former priest, Watts skillfully explains how the intuition of Eastern religion—Zen Buddhism, in particular—can be incorporated into the doctrines of Western Christianity, allowing people of all creeds to enjoy a deeper, more meaningful relationship with the spiritual in our present troubled times.
