Many of the authors represented here are familiar. C.S. Lewis, Simone Weil, Martin Buber, Thomas Merton and Henri Nouwen are all well-known. Others -- for example, Lev Gillet, an Orthodox monk, or Chogyam Trungpa, a Tibetan Buddist -- are less well-known. What all of these writers have in common is uncommon insight into our spiritual tradition, and the selections gathered offer a range of helpful suggestions for anyone concerned with living the life of the spirit in our difficult age. There are overviews of what spirituality means by Evelyn Underhill and Simon Tugwell, advice on the practice of prayer by Lev Gillet, Anthony Bloom, and C.S. Lewis, insights into the nature of the life of the spirit by Martin Buber and Abraham Joshua Heschel, a pointed commentary on ego by Chogyam Trungpa, as well as discussions on spiritual direction, the relationship between prayer and action, and the new openness to eastern religious traditions.
