More Likely to Quote Star Wars Than the Bible : Generation X and Our Frustrating Search for Rational Spirituality
While this book is not directly about Star Wars or the Bible, it does point to a cultural reality, that a large portion of Generation X turned away from religion in their search for spirituality. This book explores that search. It is a must read for anyone from Generation X who has ever struggled with his or her spiritual identity. The central question is simple: Is there any way to be spiritual without denying rationality? This book does not provide a rock solid answer to that question, but it does explore the limits of the choices that are available to us and provides ideas about what a trans-rational approach to spirituality might look like. The goal is to start a conversation, not provide absolute answers. Written in unapologetic language by a self-described GenX poster child, and riddled with pop culture quotes, this book will spur you to think, and most certainly challenge your ideas about religion and spirituality.

About Gudjon Bergmann
Gudjon Bergmann is, in many ways, a poster child for Generation X. He was a mullet-wearing, bullied, baby-faced Duran Duran fan in the eighties; rebellious rocker with the tattoos to prove it in the nineties; recovering alcoholic after rebelling too much in the late nineties; yoga teacher and motivational speaker in the first decade of the new millennium, suffering from an affliction he calls premature holiness; and then author, stay-at-home dad, and meditation teacher in recent years, logically picking away at spirituality, searching for practical applications and intersections between spiritual principles and rationality.
