From the dustjacket: Spiritual Classics offers the basics of what you need to know about fifty-two great spiritual books. Rather than focus exclusively on the most serious, difficult and formal spiritual books, it accepts that enlightenment can be found in many places and guises, some of them quite unexpected. So it includes novels, alternative approaches to religion and even children’s books, alongside some of the classic spiritual texts. From Anthony Bloom to Mother Teresa, Hermann Hesse to Carl Jung, and Meister Eckhart to St John of the Cross, ths book condenses twenty-five centuries of thought from five continents into a remarkable and indispensable guide to spiritual thought.
