About-

Reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians continues to tear at the heart of Australia, exposing our struggle for soul. In the deepest
sense, this quest is not just political and social, but also spiritual and human. Reconciliation: Searching for Australia's Soul remains timely as Norman Habel explores the significance of the continuing reconciliation process for the spiritual dimension as part of Australia's identity.

He writes: 'I am an Australian, a fifth generation Australian. For a long time, I have wondered what it means for me - for all of us - to be Australian. I have reflected on our spirit, our characters, our identity. Reconciliation: Searching for Australia's Soul is the result; an invitation to become an advocate for reconciliation.'

For Norman Habel, being Australian means embracing the story and struggle of the Aboriginal peoples for justice and recognising their suffering since 1788 as
integral to our spiritual heritage.
