Does prayer have to be silent?
Does meditation have to be solemn?
If I’m an extrovert, can I worship God?
In this groundbreaking book, psychologist and spiritual adviser Nancy Reeves presents a refreshing view of spirituality that goes beyond personality to provide extroverts (and those who love them) with exciting new ways of approaching God.
Reeves explores a wide variety of spiritual practices for extroverts, including:
- Praying in motion
- Cultivating spiritual friendships
- Practicing spirituality in groups
In the end, she urges all of us, extrovert and introvert alike, to seek a mature spirituality that embraces all the aspects of our personalities.
Includes questions for reflection and discussion. Perfect for book clubs, discussion groups, and bible study classes.
“For some reason, we think of quiet, introverted people as the very name of holiness. This cannot be true, and Nancy Reeves shows us why!”
-Richard Rohr, author of Things Hidden: Scripture as Spirituality
“I’ve been waiting a long time to read a book like this! Nancy Reeves provides much needed insight and guidance.”
-Joyce Rupp, author of Fresh Bread: And Other Gifts of Spiritual Nourishment
“As an introvert, I found Reeves’ perspectives eye-opening and enormously helpful. They will change the way I interact with the extroverts in my life. This book should be required reading for anyone offering spiritual guidance.”Nancy Reeves
