Without a doubt, Chs. 7 and 8 are among my favorite readings ever. While certainly in a summary format, the essence of the thought processes is clear.

Moving from the notion of acceptance of our human condition, Frankl lays out the philosophical groundwork for the possibility of a freedom of the human will.
After having thought vigorously about the issue of determinism over the last 25 years or so, Frankl is the only one who has assisted me in thinking that there could be some limited form of human freedom. From that kernel of a thought, the human foundations for of religion, faith, and general spirituality make a lot more sense.
