Products sampled from this guide:
This is a guide to some of my favorite spiritual books.

Have a Little Faith: A True Story A great story, a true story, of two men and their struggle to find faith in different ways, a touching tale.

The Circle of Fire: The Metaphysics of Yoga This is the definitive book to find the answers to all your deepest spiritual questions. This is the book where you will find answers to the universal questions like ‘what is God’, ‘what path should I follow’; these questions are given strictly rational answers that are in consonance with modern science. The book is intensely passionate, yet simple and lucid in language, a great book.

Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters This book shows you how to break the bonds that tie us up in our day to day lives, our false idols which enslave us.

An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith A great book, that shows you how to make the whole world into your church, how to find holiness in everything including the most simple everyday acts.

The Case for God This book defines God, not in a dualistic way, but in an intensely spiritual way and shows you how to find your own God.

The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism This book shows you how to handle your doubts. If you are afflicted by doubts, and who isn’t, this book will give you comfort and enable you to understand your doubts in a new way.

Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality A book detailing the personal story of a man as he struggles with his faith and spirituality, and finds a new meaning.

Awareness: The Perils and Opportunities of Reality Gives an important message of raising one’s level of awareness and to remain alert.

Living Buddha, Living Christ 10th Anniversary Edition This great book draws parallels between two different religions.

Gift from the Sea A great and timeless book by a truly admirable woman.
