RELIGION PAR EXCELLENCE -
ACTUALIZATIONOF THE SEVEN
STOREY NATURE OF MAN
by Uriah J. Fields (260 pages).
We are all religious. We cannot choose to be non-religious. We are also,
by nature, physical, mental, emotional, social, economic and political beings.
Because religion, the spiritual essence, in particular, ... is such dynamic and all-pervasive force, any discussion of the nature of man and, equally as important, his functioning as a human being, demands that religion be presented as the preeminent aspectual portion of human nature. This is true, however, only in the sense that the spiritual capacity determines or controls, to a large extent, what happens in the other six aspects (storeys) of human nature, i.e., how they function.
RELIGION PAR EXCELLENCE - ACTUALIZATION OF THE SEVEN STOREY
NATURE OF MAN shows how harmonization of this seven-fold endowment of human nature is tantamount to being fully human. This book, based on research, revelation and experimentation, demythologizes myths that very often are encumbrances and demonstrates how a person can extricate himself from entrapment, including the religious trap.
The author declares that to be religious is not enough. He maintains that religion can be destructive, producing fear, guilt and dependency. Or, it can be constructive and produce health, salvation and joy. Acknowledging that much religion, that is "forms of religion" is destructive, the author offers an alternative form of religion, which is more than a form, called a 'Religion of Transcendence' which enables a person to be, as Jesus said, 'I am in the world but not of the world" - to rise beyond heredity, environment and the cause-effect modality. Man is presented as a transcendent being, caught-up in cosmic connection.
RELIGION PAR EXCELLENCE ranks with the The Prophet, The Power of
Positive Thinking and The Road Less Traveled, as books that are most capable of affecting transformation in the life of an individual and society.
"Actualization of the seven storey nature of man" is a state of consciousness
in which a person ceases to deny his 'essentiality" but tenaciously embraces
his nature while respecting the "marvelousness" of his being and expressing gratitude for the delectableness of his humanity.
About the Author
URIAH J. FIELDS was born and reared in Sunflower, Alabama. The first eight years of his schooling was at the Fields School which was established by his paternal Grandfather who was born in slavery. He holds four degrees in the fields of education, religion and social psychology. In addition to his work as a former teacher in the public schools of California, he was pastor of the Bell Street Baptist Church in Montgomery which was bombed during the Montgomery Bus Boycott by rabid segregationists and rebuilt during his pastoral tenure. In his book Parting the Waters, Taylor Branch writes:
'Fields was an outspoken, unconventional, bootstrap
leader about, Martin Luther King's age. He had a goatee
since his student days at Alabama State College, which
marked him an outsider among the more image-conscious
leaders' (p. 188).
