Summary:
"Spirituality often evokes images of quiet centeredness, meditative serenity and freedom from life's pressures. Contrast Paul, who promotes a cross-shaped spirituality for fools making their way through life's trials. The brand images are crucifixion, burial and resurrection--surely a counterintuitive marketing program for living spiritually!"--Publisher description.
