    what are some of your favorite books? especially those that help you with your spirituality? (but not limited to that genre).

    i've read coc and in search of christian freedom. i've yet to read just like jesus by max lucado (?). and thanks to a similar thread, ordered illusions by richard bach.

    so what else is there?

    that should read just ordered, illusions...
    but ordered illusions sounds profound...if only i had the desire to write that book!

    Well, Thunder Rider's Burden of course

  • SpunkyChick

    It's not a spiritual book per se, but it's the best self help book I've ever read, Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway.

    some books of spirituality which have helped me in my journey

    Mankind's Search For God by WTBS (i'm sure it was not the author's intention, but this book helped me to see there were many spiritual methods)

    The Bhagavad Gita ( has a very good translation of this online free. As a disclaimer I have to say I am a member of that group)

    Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, written by "M", translated by Swami Nikhilananda

    Collected Works of Swami Vivekananda

    Miracle of Mindfullness- Thich Nhat Hanh

    The Tao Te Ching

    The Age of Reason, Thomas Paine

    Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman

    Billy Budd, Herman Melville (sort of the original "American Messiah" legend)
