Synopsis: Confirmation: The Spiritual Wisdom That Has Shaped Our Lives is a very personal collection of inspirational writings gathered by the husband and wife team of Khephra Burns and Susan L. Taylor from more than a hundred different sources, representing the wisdom of diverse cultures throughout the world that have helped to shape their spiritual life. Introduced by a moving essay describing Susan and Khephra's spiritual coming-of-age, and informed by scores of narrative bridges by the authors explaining and annotating the selections they include, the collection spotlights the wisdom of the ages that has been at the core of the author's spiritual growth over the past twenty years.

Organized under a dozen different subject areas, from love and forgiveness to fear, death, prayer and meditation, this enthralling collection includes passages not only from the traditional sacred texts of the world's major religions--the Bible, the Koran, the Torah, Bhagavad Gita and the teachings of Buddha-but from African proverbs and the writings of animists, mystics, poets, seers and songwriters elucidating the oneness of being. Among the authors included are Christian mystic Howard Thurman, Maya Angelou, Kahlil Gibran, Deepak Chopra, Sufi mystic Jalal al-Din Rumi, Black Elk, Lao-Tzu, Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh, John Coltrane, African shaman Malidoma Some, and many more.

Confirmation is a rich and varied treasury of spiritual delights that will be nothing less than a sacred feast to Susan Taylor's devoted fans and followers.

From Library Journal: These inspirational writings, which include passages from the Bible, the Koran, and the teachings of Buddha, as well as African proverbs, reveal the editors' spiritual and cultural roots.
