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.
