About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
They say God works in mysterious ways. John Domenico should know. In his 50 plus years, he's embarked on a seeker's journey that has taken him from steadfast Catholicism to born-again Christianity to a unique kind of inclusive spirituality. Blind Spots: The Memoirs of a Baby Boomer on the Rocky Road towards Spiritual Awakening collects his insightful and often humorous thoughts, reflections and critiques on all of them. The result is a deliciously candid and frank book that will appeal to anyone who's ever struggled to understand his or her faith.
From early on, it's clear Domenico marched to his own drummer. As a child, he learns to question his family's Catholic faith - and finds plenty of trouble from the nuns and priests in Catholic school.
Subsequent to his experimentation in the 1960's and 70's, Domenico settles down and, after initial resistance, discovers Pentecostalism.
But eventually he finds cracks in his latest belief system, and he sets out for what will be the most spiritually fulfilling quest of all.
Interspersed are compelling asides on his personal life, as well as the politics, major events, personalities and trends that have shaped the last half-century. Throughout it all, Domenico's sensitivity and keen wit masterfully transform an ordinarily timeworn subject, that under his care, is crafted into a thought-provoking, rollicking ride that might just get you questioning your own deeply held beliefs...
"It made me laugh, it made me cry and it made me think so much I don't know what I believe anymore."
"I loved it... I think it should be required reading for everyone on the planet."
"Domenico tells his story with painful rawness. His courage is rivaled only by his masterful storytelling, revealing much of who we all are in this provocative memoir."
Deftly constructed at 537 pages, Blind Spots: The Memoirs of a Baby Boomer on the Rocky Road towards Spiritual Awakening is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Religion / Spirituality category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Blind Spots meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $23.95.
