Check out Holistic Mysticism: The Integrated Spiritual Path of the Quakers by Amos Smith. Just released in November!

Check out Brian Russell’s new book, Astonished By The Word: Reading Scripture for Deep Transformation.

What is Rich reading?

I am currently reading The Wood Between the Worlds: A Poetic Theology of the Cross by Brian Zahnd.

I am currently re-reading The Success Principles – 10th Anniversary Edition: How to Get from Where You Are to Where to Where You Want to Be by Jack Canfield .
