Book Review: Understanding Spirituality From A to Z

Understanding Spirituality From A to Z, by Ellen Gerst, is a glossary of terms that define basic concepts of spirituality. This ebook contains 26 terms starting with "Affirmation" and ending with "Zest". The purpose of this book is to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and your place and purpose in life.

About the Author
Born and raised in New York, Ellen Gerst grew up wanting her classmates to share in her joy of reading. At a young age, she decided to become an English teacher and attempt to instill in her students a love for the written word.

Of course, master plans such as hers are oftentimes altered as life proceeds, and one calling lost is another found. Although she did receive a degree in English Secondary Education, she decided to use her teaching and writing skills in a less formal atmosphere than originally planned. However, Ellen remains a teacher in her every endeavor.

In penning her books, she utilizes both her personal experiences and her professional expertise as a coach who specializes in the fields of grief and relationships.

The Language of Spirituality
Ellen Gerst begins this ebook by sharing her understanding of the difference between spirituality and religion. She believes that a person who considers himself religious can also follow a spiritual path.

Ms. Gerst highlights 26 terms that she believes are important to understand and apply to our lives. She defines the terms, gives examples of how these concepts can work in our daily lives and provides a quotation that relates to the term.

My Thoughts
This brief ebook provides definitions, advice, encouragement and guidance on how to live a powerful and successful life. The author has carefully chosen words that provide a foundation to following a spiritual path in life.

This book will help you eliminate destructive thought patterns and focus on thoughts that will bring peace and comfort to your life. 

It took me about 30 minutes to read this book but it provided me with many hours of topics to reflect on. I would encourage you to read the entire book and then go back and study each of the terms and think about what they mean to you and how you are living your life.

My Rating: 5 Stars Out of 5
