From the Back Cover:

Reading with the Heart

Many Christians today are seeking a deeper understanding of God. They want their faith to be meaningful in everyday life; to walk closely with the Lord and to live out the Gospel message. An important resource for Christ-like growth is the great wealth of writings from Christian writers past and present. The readings in 'Spiritual Classics' have been carefully selected, accompanied by a short documentary, scriptural quotations, and exercises for use by individuals or small groups. Following a year's plan the readings are arranged according to the twelve spiritual disciplines featured in Richard Foster's best-selling 'Celebration of Discipline.'

Classic authors included here who have inspired Christians through the ages are: Augustine of Hippo, Thomas Merton, John Henry Newman, Thomas More, John Milton, John Wesley, Gerard Manley Hopkins and many more. Twentieth century authors include Simone Weil, Catherine Marshall and Joyce Huggett.

'The spiritual classics invite us into the world of Christian devotion in such a way that we come to adore God.'
Richard Foster
