In this epic survey, he pulls together the changes that occurred in organized and disorganized religious life during this turbulent decade, and shows where those changes came from, following in a chronological manner the religious news and events of the day. He recalls the unusual role religion played in the 1960 and 1964 presidential elections, the stunning results of the Second Vatican Council, the place of religion in the civil rights and antiwar movements, the emergence of Death of God theology, and the impact of religion on the counterculture. He also interprets what happened spiritually as an important and perhaps permanent shift in the character of American religion, from an institutionally determined to a more subjective experience of the divine.

Challenges the prevailing scientific view that the brain rules the body. Far from being by-products of neurochemistry, shows that emotions are the key by which we can understand ourselves and our interactions with the world around us. ISBN: 9781594772887.

Oakland, Ca: Context Press / New Harbinger Publications. 335 pp. Paperback octavo, as new condition, correction slip loosely inserted. The positive psychology movement is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play. At the same time, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), a mindfulness-based, values-oriented behavioral therapy that has many parallels to Buddhism, yet is not religious in any way, has been focused on helping people achieve their greatest human potential. ACT and positive psychology both promote human flourishing, and they often share overlapping themes and applications, particularly regarding setting goals, psychological strengths, mindfulness, and clarifying what matters most - our values and search for meaning in life. Despite these similarities, both therapeutic models are rarely discussed in relation to one another. By understanding of the seven foundations of well-being, professionals will walk away with concrete, modernized strategies to use when working with clients. ISBN: 9781608823376.
