Description

Literature and Spirituality is part of Longman's The Essential Literature Series. This book takes the reader on a literary spritiual journal through diverse works of literature. This anthology of literary works gives a taste of some of the ways writers have explored, shared, dismissed, or argued about the ultimate, spiritual questions of life. The first goal of this book is to give a range of works which show how authors can take us beyond our immediate, daily experience. The second, more subtle, goal of this work is that readers will seek to find health in their spiritual lives. In spite of radical differences, the religions of the world share a common concern: humanity is searching for a spiritual peace which can give the individual an anchor to survive the storms of life. The editors of this anthology have their firm conclusions about how people can find peace with God. They invite you to also explore this issue for yourself. They hope that these selections will challenge you to seek the personal peace and spiritual health which Jesus promised.
