    I'm a disciple of Christ (LDS) and Buddhism clarifies a lot for me, much like studying Spanish helps me better understand English grammar. Anyway, this thoughtful book appeared at just the right time. If you are a multi-religious person, either by birth or by choice (as in my case), yo...

    At last, a favorable book about my kind of people. Under Religion on my hospital patient profile is listed ?Unknown,? since I would not be forced into a one-box category. Bidwell interviews people who are multifaith in practice because of migration, mixed marriages, colonialism/mis...

    I requested a pre-publication review copy of this book some time ago but was denied, and as I had some time available while recuperating from surgery, read it now. As I am still trying to understand why people have one religion, I thought perhaps Mr. Bidwell might have some insight on ...

    I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway. I might classify myself as a religious skeptic, curious about religions other than the one I have been a part of throughout my life. I have often thought that religion is an accident of birth. I, sometimes, do what is expected, but, un...

    I won a copy of this book. The title sounded interesting, so I put in for it and won. The book is about spiritually fluid people, or people who follow multiple religions (think Christianity and Buddhism). ...

    An interesting book about contemporary religious life. It's full of interesting insight and it's an engagin and fascinating read. Highly recommended! Many thanks to Beacon Press and Edelweiss for this ARC ...

    I'm a disciple of Christ (LDS) and Buddhism clarifies a lot for me, much like studying Spanish helps me better understand English grammar. Anyway, this thoughtful book appeared at just the right time. If you are a multi-religious person, either by birth or by choice (as in my case), yo...

    I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway. I might classify myself as a religious skeptic, curious about religions other than the one I have been a part of throughout my life. I have often thought that religion is an accident of birth. I, sometimes, do what is expected, but, un...

    I picked this up at my library because I'm interested in this topic. When I did my Masters dissertation I looked at the religious identities of people who grew up in interfaith homes. I found that a lot of the individuals follow two (or more) religions not because they find comfort in ...

    Interesting sociological examination of people Bidwell refers to as "spiritually fluid" individuals. They are people for whom, as he puts it, one religion isn't enough. He is talking about people who identify with and practice more than one religious approach to life. Buddhist-Christia...

    I won a copy of this book. The title sounded interesting, so I put in for it and won. The book is about spiritually fluid people, or people who follow multiple religions (think Christianity and Buddhism). ...

    An interesting book about contemporary religious life. It's full of interesting insight and it's an engagin and fascinating read. Highly recommended! Many thanks to Beacon Press and Edelweiss for this ARC ...

    Interesting, more anecdotal than I was expecting/hoping for. ...

    2.5 stars. Interesting, but very repetitive and dry. Would?ve preferred more stories about spiritually fluid people and less academic theory. ...

    Loved it! ...

    Reading this for my presentation on two religions in the home. Brought out some interesting points but tended to be repetitive. ...

    This is another one of those books that I think would have been better as a longform article. However, it's still really good and there's not a whole lot of original research or writing on this topic. A very good read. ...

    I found this book very interesting due to my story and my conflicted and complicated relationship with religion, As I am Italian it is not easy for me to avoid religion in any case, but I have always considered me more a spiritual than a religious person. So this book gave me some very...

    A mix of theorising and personal experience makes this reflective book both a good read and a useful resource. I wouldn't have minded something more academic (in the sense of digging deeper in the theory and giving more detail about the case studies and research mentioned), but this st...

    I'm a disciple of Christ (LDS) and Buddhism clarifies a lot for me, much like studying Spanish helps me better understand English grammar. Anyway, this thoughtful book appeared at just the right time. If you are a multi-religious person, either by birth or by choice (as in my case), yo...

    At last, a favorable book about my kind of people. Under Religion on my hospital patient profile is listed ?Unknown,? since I would not be forced into a one-box category. Bidwell interviews people who are multifaith in practice because of migration, mixed marriages, colonialism/mis...

    I requested a pre-publication review copy of this book some time ago but was denied, and as I had some time available while recuperating from surgery, read it now. As I am still trying to understand why people have one religion, I thought perhaps Mr. Bidwell might have some insight on ...
