From the Back Cover:

"It is a safe assumption that the writings gathered together in The Mood of Christmas have nurtured Howard Thurman's own understanding of the celebration of Christmas. They are the more precious because in his life one finds a sanctity that is not often seen and yet is always recognizable." -Elizabeth O'Connor

Howard Thurman writes that "there must always be remaining in every one's life some place for the singing of angels...where the commonplace is shot through now with new glory. In it the angels sing.

The Mood of Christmas was originally published in 1973 and, though the demand for it has been constant through the years, it is reprinted here for the first time.

At the time of his death in 1981, Howard Thurman was Dean Emeritus of Marsh Chapel, Boston University, and Chairman of the board of trustees of the Howard Thurman Educational Trust in San Francisco. He also served as Dean of Rankin Chapel, Howard University, Washington D.C.; as professor at Howard University School of Religion, and as Director of Religion Life at Morehouse and Spelman Colleges, Atlanta. Founder of the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples in San Francisco, the first interracial, interdenominational church in the united States, he was honorary Canon of the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, New York City.

Poet, Mystic, Philosopher and Theologian, Dr. Thurman authored more than twenty books including, Meditations of the Heart, The Inward Journey, Jesus and the Disinherited, The Centering Moment, The Creative Encounter, The Search for Common Ground and With Head and Heart, his autobiography.
