A Book and a Chat with Paul Rademacher

My guest on todays "A Book and a Chat” is Paul Rademacher.

After a career in the construction industry, Paul sensing a call into the Christian ministry entered Princeton Theological Seminary in 1982. He graduated three years later with a Master of Divinity degree, having majored in psychology and Old Testament studies. His first church was in Muncie, Indiana, where he continued his exploration of spirituality and meditation. He also enrolled in doctoral studies at the Ecumenical Theological Center in Detroit, Michigan, where practice in prayer and meditation were emphasized as the foundation for ministry.

In 1987 he found himself being drawn to the writings of Robert Monroe, the founder of The Monroe Institute (TMI) whose books chronicled his own "out of body" experiences and mystical encounters. This was the start of a journey that now includes the publication of his first book, A Spiritual Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe: Travel Tips for the Spiritually Perplexed.
A Spiritual Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe is the perfect book for readers who feel that their religious tradition no longer satisfies their spiritual needs. An elegantly written memoir and meditation, the book explores the many paths of enlightenment available to readers looking beyond today’s churches, temples, and synagogues.

As a former minister, Paul found that too often church focused too much on eternity—what happens when we die. With this book, he shows that the rightful focus of any true spiritual path is on infinity—how to experience eternity, the fullness of our divinity, in the here and now. In A Spiritual Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe he has written a deeply personal book that often uses biblical texts as a jumping-off point to explore enlightenment outside of any traditional religious institution. His quest for enlightenment ultimately led him to discover the work of the Monroe Institute, where he is now executive director.

A Spiritual Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe is a beautiful book for any spiritual seeker who wants a deeper spiritual life than traditional religious life can provide.
