Pathways to the Supreme is the culmination of Bede Griffiths' search for the Supreme. It is his last text for publication and enjoins the contents of two notebooks in which he transcribed passages of literature, religion, and philosophy. Beginning with Griffiths' personal credo, he traces the history of the concept of God from primitive times to Christianity utilizing the wisdom of Jacques and Raissa Maritain, Mircea Eliade. Rilke, D. H. Lawrence, Wordsworth, Sophocles, Plato, Chuang-Tzu, Buddha, Tagore, St. Augustine, Eckhart, Tauler, and Kabir. Reading Griffiths' personal notebook is like plumbing the inner cave of his heart.
