Spirit Matters

Spirit Matters: How Making Sense of Life Affects Wellbeing, By Peter Kaldor, Philip Hughes and Alan Black

ISBN: 978-0980-827-507

Spirit Matters describes the various religious, spiritual and secular ways Australians approach life. It examines the consequences for personal and social wellbeing of these various approaches. The book argues that how we choose to live DOES make a difference to our experiences of life and our contributions to the wider society.

Prof. Ross Langmead (Whitley College and Secretary to the Australian Association for Mission Studies) writes:

'Peter Kaldor, Philip Hughes and Alan Black have written a beautifully clear and accessible book on how Australians make sense of life, whether through types of Christian faith, other religions, alternative spiritualities or secular approaches. Based on the Wellbeing and Security Survey in 2002, it is full of fascinating data showing that how people nourish their spirit really does matter.  Along the way, the brief summaries of the background debates on topics such as secularisation, spirituality and well-being are gems of brevity and clarity.  An essential book for understanding Australian spirituality.'
