Spirituality, Science & a Universal Path of Divine Love
By William Keepin, PhD
Foreword by Thomas Keating, OCSO


“Belonging to God is a brilliant study of a subtle subject at the heart of all esoteric spiritual traditions. The multi-disciplined learned author has focused mainly on the Christian, Muslim and the Hindu Vaishnavaite mystical traditions; however, most of what he says applies to all religions. Those who belong to God do not belong to any particular religion. They may have been nourished by a specific tradition, but the tradition most succeeds when it leads the aspirant beyond itself. The author has made a substantial contribution to the fast emerging discipline of inter-traditional spirituality. Thoughtful, careful and wonderful!”

Ravi Ravindra, author, The Pilgrim Soul and Science and the Sacred


“Masterful and groundbreaking! Through the unique lens of spirituality and science, and with exceptional skill, Will opens our heart and mind to the exquisite truth that Ultimate Reality is one in all religions.”

Imam Jamal Rahman, author, Spiritual Gems of Islam; coauthor, Getting to the Heart of Interfaith


“Will Keepin’s wise and generous heart shines through in this impressive synthesis of timeless sacred wisdom and contemporary perspectives from interspirituality and the sciences. Drawing on both Eastern and Western sources, he mounts a cogent case that the path of divine love—too often dismissed as “dualistic” or “merely devotional”—can indeed culminate in the highest forms of nondual realization.”

Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault, PhD, author, The Wisdom Way of Knowing and The Heart of Centering Prayer: Nondual Christianity in Theory and Practice


“A masterful blend of rigorous scholarship and wild devotion…. A vital contribution to the emerging body of literature that clarifies and celebrates the interspiritual movement.”

Mirabai Starr, author, God of Love: A Guide to the Heart of Judaism, Christianity & Islam


“To the landscape of a global spirituality … aptly adds the detail needed from the depth of myriad wisdom traditions and the advances of current science…. Visionary.”

Kurt Johnson, PhD, coauthor, The Coming Interspiritual Age


“Helps us to remember what is essential and true, and guides us to live the love that belongs to an awakened soul. Here are keys that we each can use to unlock our own mystic heart.”

Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, founder, The Golden Sufi Center


“[A] vision of unity that inspires the mind with the perspective of contemporary science; ignites the heart with the mystical fire of divine love across faith traditions; and offers us a path for planetary spiritual awakening.”

Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian, Spiritual Director, Center for Spiritual Enlightenment


“[With] vast knowledge and deep love of the scriptures and mystics … [Will’s] humble and reverent case for interspirituality can lead each spiritual seeker to the experience of belonging to God. Isn’t this exactly what the world needs, and exactly what we need?”

Robert McDermott, PhD, president emeritus and chair of the Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies; author, The Essential Aurobindo


“Calls us to something deeper…. Through the framework of three different faiths and that of science, calls on us to love each other’s paths.”

Swami Ambikananda, translator, Katha Upanishad and the Uddhava Gita


“Weaves the most critical teachings of significant spiritual traditions … into a majestic tapestry of love. A substantial invitation to open our hearts to the world that needs to be.”

Rabbi Ted Falcon, PhD, author, Journey of Awakening; coauthor, Finding Peace through Spiritual Practice: The Interfaith Amigos’ Guide to Personal, Social and Environmental Healing


“One has to appreciate the intensive research done in this scientific and faith comparative study…. The path of divine love is available to all humans, so this book is for all.”

Mary Frost, deputy chair, Cape Town Interfaith Initiative


“Nothing is more refreshingly relevant than a nuclear physicist writing a riveting book on belonging to God…. Will’s great gift is both enthusiasm for the progress in these matters and deep discernment with regard to details.”

Father Francis D’Sa, SJ, director, Institute for the Study of Religion


“A passionate argument for the beauty and profundity of a devotional path to union with the Divine…. A song from the heart (and mind) that calls each of us into a devotional state of prayer for wholeness in our own lives and entices us ever deeper toward union with the Divine.”

Rory McEntee, coauthor, The New Monasticism: An Interspiritual Manifesto for Contemplative Living
