It's likely the men and women introduced in this series would not call themselves ''Modern Spiritual Masters,'' yet there's no doubt their lives, their work and their words have acted as both companion and guide to many a modern seeker of truth. As readers we enter the community of faith each time we pick up a good book, transcending the boundaries of space and time through our interaction with the writer and his vision. The authors represented here are part of that larger community -- their words are ways toward communion and grace, even friendship. Along with selections from their writings, the books in this series include helpful (and rather absorbing) introductions that relate the special influence each has had on contemporary spirituality through the particular struggles presented by the twentieth century. With that, we had best let them speak for themselves.
An Eighth Day View:
Modern Spiritual Masters Series. Selections and a short biography offer the wisdom of the Anglican writer, an outstanding voice in twentieth-century spirituality and a modern pioneer in the mysticism of everyday life.
