9780877853985: LIGHT IN MY DARKNESS

One of Time's women of the century, Helen Keller, reveals her mystical side in this best-selling spiritual autobiography. Writing that her first reading of Emanuel Swedenborg at age fourteen gave her truths that were "to my faculties what light, color and music are to the eye and ear," she explains how Swedenborg's works sustained her throughout her life.

This new edition includes a foreword by Dorothy Herrmann, author of the acclaimed Helen Keller: A Life, and a new chapter, "Epilogue: My Luminous Universe."

From the Back Cover:

Helen Keller traces her spiritual development, revealing her mystical, ecstatic aspect, in this revised and expanded edition of her spiritual autobiography. "Emanuel Swedenborg's message has been my strongest incitement to overcome limitations," she proclaims.

Swedenborgiansim, with its concepts of a universal spiritual reality and brotherhood, a loving god, and an afterlife in which no one would suffer from limitations and handicaps, appealed to Helen. She drew much inspiration and insight from the Swedish seer's writings and his enthralling presentation of morality, calling them "the light in my darkness, the voice in my silence." (From the Foreword by Dorothy Herrmann, author of Helen Keller: A Life)

Keller herself was without conceit; her own words make her a more appealing figure than the woman glimpsed in old newsreels. Her view of her life is motivated by joy and gratitude. (The Bloomsbury Review)

Exploring these writings gives us a more intimate view of Keller's joyous celebration of life and transformative spiritual vision." (NAPRA Review)

[This book]. . . presents an inspiring picture of this remarkable woman's affirmation of the power and triumph of the spirit (New Age Retailer).

About the Author:

Helen Adams Keller (1880-1968) was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deaf and blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree. The story of how Keller's teacher, Annie Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a nearly complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become known worldwide through the dramatic depictions of the play and film The Miracle Worker.
