Best book ever read regarding spirtuality

by Mark on 12/10/2008

I purchased this particular copy after leaving another one on the plane (complete w/ all my margin notes). Even though I'd already read the book, the thought of not having this book in my collection, or more correctly "in my possession" was unacceptable. Quite frankly it's probably the best book I've ever read on the subject. Even though it is written in a manner that kind of "skips" around between various authors, venues and perspectives, it captures the meaning and purpose of spirituality in a very personal way. This is the 3rd copy of the book I have purchased and the least amount of money I've paid. Shipping a little slow but other than that, completely satisfied. Worth the price even if used for nothing more than a reference for all the wonderful quotations! At $10 I purchased two copies so that I would have one on hand to give away (makes a GREAT gift!)
