What if our actual lives aren't 'written' like a simple story? Nor like a book that flows neatly and sequentially from 'chapter-to-chapter' via a rigidly linear plot. But written, instead, through a series of creative interludes or moments. Further still, what if our lives shouldn't simply happen to us? But, rather, be lived through our affirmative acts of seeking 'life.' As part of an ongoing, active quest. A human quest for deeply spiritual lives of continuously 'becoming.' In Unbinding the Perpetual Soul, Jeffrey C. Tucker writes via a series of essays. These diverse, accessible, engaging, creative, and provocative essays are organized around our human quests for 'being.' For to 'be' entails continuous and challenging, but highly rewarding, quests for things such as identity, wellbeing, belonging, truths, things sacred, healing, transcendence, and meaning. Questing is not an easy journey, to be sure. But it's life changing. It's exhilarating. It's exciting and rewarding. And while far from certain in its destination, one thing is for sure: you'll be a better, healthier, and far more actualized person in the process. You'll be more spiritually 'whole' and grounded. So join in this quest, if you will. An inclusive, soulful, unbinding, and life-giving one at that. Jeffrey C. Tucker is an author, blogger, speaker, and an advocate for broadening the reach of spiritual care more fully and inclusively into our daily lives. Tucker received his Master of Theological Studies from Palmer Theological Seminary. He is the author of two prior books, The End of the Island: Finding Life in the Movements of Human Suffering, Pain, and Loss (Resource, 2016) and Out of the Canyon: Retracing New Steps Home amidst Human Suffering (Resource, 2016). n
