Because of this lack of religious alignment, this book will have broad appeal. Whether Jewish, Catholic, Wiccan or New Age spiritualist, regardless of one's denomination or religion, I don't think any reader will find offense at this book. This book may even be encouraging to agnostics and general spiritualists. This book may be a good outreach method to draw in non religious readers and general spiritual readers into positive concepts of faith, well being, kindness, empowerment and self help. I believe readers of all ages with find encouragement in these pages. Bowen is an "Ordained Minister" but as a reader, I am unclear of what he is ordained as. His book is benign, non offensive, yet positive and uplifting. It would make a good inspirational, self help book. In its pages are down to earth analogies or modern day "parables" which end with good advice for anyone seeking direction or motivation. Nevertheless it not specifically "Christian" or biblically based, unless the reader chooses to read its pages in light of their own theological or bible based beliefs.
For those looking for in-depth theology in the faith of an extreme crisis, CS Lewis or Max Lucado books would be more appropriate. This book would be a good gateway to religion in general or perhaps Christianity. This generic, embryonic faith expressed by Bowen's writing style has the potential to become whatever faith, or religion the reader wants it to be. As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Convergent books.
