If you wondered if the thousands of clergy of the liberal United Church of Canada are always reading the Bible, or, alternatively, tend to steamy sex novels, the truth has been revealed in a worthwhile survey.
The respected United Church magazine, The Observer, surveyed a bunch of their clergy across the country and came up with the top 25 spiritual thinkers they'd recommend to the denomination's roughly 500,000 members.
It's the kind of thing I'd like to see done by a lot of religious organizations, from Catholic to Pentecostal, Buddhist to Sikh. Favorite authors says a lot about a group or a person.
Read it all.
