From the Inside Flap:

Tom Butler-Bowdon’s selections for 50 Spiritual Classics are bound to be controversial. From mega-bestsellers to 1st Century writings, stories of personal journeys to biographies of spiritual leaders through the ages, Butler-Bowdon places each work into its historical context and offers insightful commentary on how these classics can help spiritual seekers everywhere bring personal beliefs, values and practices squarely into the center of their every day lives.

50 Spiritual Classics captures the diversity of life journeys that span centuries, continents, spiritual traditions and secular beliefs: from the historical The Book of Chuang Tzu to modern insight from the Kabbalah, from St. Augustine’s Confessions to Eckhart Tolle’s recent The Power of Now, from Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements to Rick Warren’s phenomenon The Purpose-Driven Life. The first and only bite-sized guide to the very best in spiritual writing, this one-of-a-kind collection includes personal diaries and compelling biographies of such diverse figures as Gandhi, Malcolm X, and Black Elk; Eastern philosophers and gurus including Krishnamurti, Yogananda, Chögyam Trungpa and Suzuki; and Western saints and mystics such as St. Francis of Assisi, Herman Hesse and Simone Weil.

In its commentaries of both the conventional classics as well as new writings destined to endure, 50 Spiritual Classics makes universal the human spiritual experience beyond time and space and will inspire spiritual seekers everywhere to begin their own adventure.
