Beyond Wellbeing Spirituality & Human Flourishing Book Launch


Beyond Wellbeing

Spirituality and Human Flourishing

Maureen Miner, Martin Dowson and Stuart Devenish (Eds.)

Charlotte, NC: Information Age Publishing, 2012.

You are invited to attend a book launch for this unique project by Australian and New Zealand authors.

Fractured, relationally broken and spiritually empty people instinctively reach for happiness.

But happiness is a transitory state. More stable and worthwhile than the pursuit of happiness, is leading a flourishing life. What is flourishing; and what role does spirituality play in producing human flourishing?

The editors and authors of this unique volume give the answer that Christian spirituality makes a vital contribution to human flourishing, turning fractured people into whole and flourishing people who know themselves, know why they exist, and that they are embraced by God.

 Speakers: Dr Ruth Powell (Director National Church Life Survey Research, Australian Catholic University),DrMaureen Miner (Director of Research, Wesley Institute)&DrStuart Devenish (Head of Research, Lecturer in Mission and Theology,Australian College of Ministries; Director of Research, Melbourne School of Theology).
