9780062514424: Soul Food: Stories to Nourish the Spirit and the Heart

Great teachings stories – that school us in virtue and ethics, compassion and humanity – have been passed down through the ages as a vital, personal way to share wisdom.

Jack Kornfield & Christina Feldman serve up a delicious banquet of wise tales from the world’s greatest spiritual guides, including Jesus, the Buddh, Ramakrishna, and the Taoist sages. They offer contemporary readers a feast rich with wisdom and filled with timeless moral and spiritual lessons.

Gathering lively and inspiring parables from both Eastern and Western traditions, from Christian, Buddhist, Sufi, Jewish, Native American, African, and Zen teachings, Soul Food illustrates the eternal truths: the greatness of the human spirit, the endless wonder and possiblity of live, the necessity of courage, love and laughter, and our quest for wisdom and virtue. Each story offers a glimpse of revelation, an example of virtue, or a moment of truth that will sustain travellers as they traverse the road to a more spiritual life.
