With this second set of great devotional classics, Upper Room Books offers an excellent selection of writings from six great Christian writers -- Francis and Clare (one volume), Julian of Norwich, Evelyn Underhill, Toyohiko Kagawa, and Thomas a Kempis. Each book has 14 accessible segments that will encourage reading and reflection and cover some of the writer's major concerns. Each book also contains an introduction to the life stories of these leaders in the church.
Through this collection, the reader is presented new understandings of prayer, insight into knowing and loving God, and support for spiritual growth. An appendix in each volume contains suggestions on how to read the classics in a formative way, both individually and with a small group. This series offers a depth of content in combination with a highly readable translation of the original writings. The Spiritual Classics provide a helpful way to explore the church's greatest writing on the spiritual life.
