Editorial Reviews

Review

I have read Howard Thurman and been informed, influenced, and girded by his courage, intelligence, and abiding love. --Maya Angelou

"The minister will find this a sources of ideas and illustrations for sermon material. The layman will find it helpful for personal devotions and family worship." --H. G. J., San Francisco Chronicle, 1954

About the Author

Hailed by Life magazine as one of the great preachers of the twentieth century; a spiritual advisor to Martin Luther King, Jr., Sherwood Eddy, James Farmer, A. J. Musty, and Pauli Murray; the first black dean at a white university; cofounder of the first interracially pastored, intercultural church in the United States; Howard Thurman (1899-1981) was a man of penetrating foresight and astonishing charisma. His vision of the world was one of a democratic camaraderie born of faith, and in light of today's global community, one of particular importance.

Format: Paperback
I have read this book probably about 5 times. However, every time I read a poem or meditation, I got some type of new revelation from this man's words. Howard Thurman is by far one of the most wise ,intellectual,spiritual and thought provoking men I have ever studied. This book touches every issue that probably every person will inevitably face. From life, love, race, death, pain and joy, this book is a must read for the poet and the seeker of the very heart of God alike.

I am speechless with this man and his work. He is a great philospher & great spirtual teacher. He has touched my soul in all my trials in life. "Meditations of the Heart" will assist you in your trials and assist you in your spirtual growth. I have read many times along with "Deep is the Hunger". You will be touched.

This book is a profound revealation of the connection between the heart, soul and mind. Howard Thurman is a prolific writer, scholar, and intuitive who seemed to have a direct line to the Universal Spirit. It is not a book that is to be stored on the shelf as one can read it again and again and each time it would have new meaning for the reader. His meditations are truly from the depths of his heart. Highly recommended!

This book has been more than what I hoped. A friend read a few excerpts from her copy and I decided to get one for myself. This is better than any daily devotional or short form inspirational book I've ever had next to my bed. There's not a daily life struggle that he doesn't address. It's truly a must have!

The timelessness and profundity of this book cannot be overrated. Thurman has some timeless reflections in here, especially for his audience of spiritual/religious inclinations. But even for me, a firmly irreligious reader, Thurman has some basic, humbling, commonsense advice about how to accept your unavoidable failings and foibles, how to establish internal fortitude and external communion with like-minded and encouraging people. This book is far more invaluable than I could ever articulate. A great book!!

I ordered this item from Amazon and it arrived in a timely manner. I ordered it used and was very pleased with the condition of the item. I would highly recommend this item to anyone looking to participate in a daily devotion. Thurman writes with such scholarly insight;yet he fully engages his reader and does not complicate his meaning with intellectual jargon. It is great reading!!!

When I read he taught Dr Martin L King, I knew he was a great mind. He was a spiritual leader way before his time.

It is the first book I read by Howard Thurman. I had read some of his quotes in a magazine and wanted to read more of his writings. He is a very spiritual person and writes so everyone can understand his message -- which is simple but powerful - Everyone would benefit from his words of wisdom, like "I want to be more holy in my heart" & ,"God is near to all who call upon Him - To all who call upon him in Truth.
I have purchased several copies of this book to give as gifts to my friends......
