    1. Since I was in high school, one of my hobbies has been to read and study religious and spiritual writings from all over the world throughout history I have not studied all religions nor do I plan to, for I am not drawn to all religions I study religions that I am interested in and fascinated by for their traditions, history and to build my own faith.I am very knowledgeable about several major religions traditions as well as many minor ones.All that said, though I am very firm in my own beliefs, [...]

    2. Ahhhhh mazing is perhaps the best way to describe this series I am currently re reading it and its amazing how these 50 spiritual classics can assist me in relating to anyone, and not just in some religious, spiritual sense Yes, the format is not a novel but 10 12 minute vignettes on my audio book series, extremely well narrated but any and every kind of spirituality or NO SPIRITUALITY is available for the seeker And these are sooooo diverse, from The Road to Mecca, to Black Elk Speaks, Carlos C [...]

    3. This was great I ve read a few of the books in this work, and I think they were described very well What I really enjoyed was biographical information about each book s author Essentially most spiritual works emphasis the same points live simply, forgive, take time to reflect but live in the present, and reject materialism I also read the 50 Psychology Classics by this author and liked it a lot Both were very uplifting

    4. This is a nice overview for those who are interested in books on spirituality The author covers all the major religions with a heavy focus on modern New Age books The author gives a basic summary of each book and autobiographical information which is perfect for my ADD I also enjoyed the fact that the author describes the less than enlightened thinking of some of the authors.

    5. I thought this was going to be direct quotes or excerpts with the author expanding upon them, but it felt like one big rant It was hard to follow and I could barely recognize which spiritual classic was being talked about at any one time.

    6. This book is a must read for anyone who s interested in spitituality It opened my eyes to so many thing until I m frustrated I have a new respect for philosophy There were 5 or 6 books that I m going to read in the future because of this book Very good book

    7. This book contains wisdom than one might hear in a lifetime.Read the book with the intention of finding the spiritual book that suits you and you will love the book.

    8. What an excellent book, having read the 50 Self Help Classics I was looking forward to reading this one, I was not disappointed I am fortunate I have plenty of time being retired, but these types of books are always best to read over a long period of time Read a chapter digest and then another later Some of them I read on several occasions I do admit I did not quite understand some of the logic and thoughts, but then that s what I want something to think about and ponder Try it you will enjoy.

    9. Not as good as his 50 Philosophy Classics, but still worth the time for all the new titles I found to add to my wish list Even though a few of the selected works were laughable at least when considered among a host of classics , I was pleased with the overall diversity of Butler s collection.

    10. 50 Spiritual Classics by Tom Butler BowdonThis is a very interesting, useful book There s one good advice When you wake up, place a half smile on your face, keep it even or especially when you feel angry, upset Keep it throughout the day.Another spiritual suggestion Do things slowlyThis wisdom is from a book of Tolstoy, which I had read before this other classic What is the most important time Now Who is the most important person The person with whom you are Now What is the most important thing [...]

    11.

    12. Dit boek schets in kort bestek van gemiddeld 7 pagina s per boek de highlights van de 50 beschreven spirituele klassiekers De term klassieker is hier wel met enige nuance te gebruiken Het leverde voor mij in ieder geval voldoende motivatie op om een aantal ervan op mijn leeslijst te plaatsen en ondertussen heb ik twee ervan gelezen Op basis van die ervaring moet ik concluderen dat de opsteller een vrij aardige selectie van de per boek te bespreken onderwerpen heeft gemaakt De Quintens nagelt hij [...]

    13. I just finished reading this book I thought it was fantastic It is a great starting point for anyone looking to broaden their knowledge in spiritual literature I found it wonderfully informative After finishing it, I feel better equipped to start my in depth search for spiritual fulfillment and guidance.I love this book because it presents a wide range of spiritual perspectives I have never been fully absorbed by a single spiritual ideology I find wisdom and truth from many different areas of sp [...]

    14. This is just a book filled with reviews of other books Although the reviews are good They are just a collection of reviews personally I think spirituality is too personal for someone else to tell you what is good to read A thing that touches one person, may not touch another Hope you enjoy it if you get it

    15. I am loving this book, at first I thought it reproduced a chapter or two from each author s original books but NO the Butler Bowdon makes a 2 3 page commentary of each book and he is right to the point It introduces you to some of the best literature of inner discovery.

    16. Wisdom for Dummies , in that it contains A summaries of great spiritual works and insight while B giving equal time to questionably influential contemporary authors with flimsy ideologies and dummy adherents Then again, it s not always easy to disambiguate the two.

    17. I have been reading this book chapter by chapter for 1 year The book contains small chapter reviews on 50 wonderful people who have made a difference in this world either by social justice or their contribution to spirituality religion I recommend this book.

    18. Nobody s perfect but then these people who created these inspirational stories have gone from the baddest ones to the most divine ones by serving God and their neighbors after realizing how good life should be treated Will always go back to this book for inspiration Twas nice compilation

    20. Provides commentaries on 50 great spiritual books of all times.An excellent and concise just over 300 pages introductory reference material, which I really enjoyed reading.Read the extended summary of this book bookwormsrecos 200

    21. I just loved the format 10 minute overviews of spiritual classics which gave just enough insight to encourage deeper reading into the originals themselves.

    22. Useful book to have a brief aper u of 50 great spiritual books After reading it, I went to buy some of the books described to read them in full.Recommanded as a gift for spiritual searchers

    23. I bought a half dozen or so of his recommended books, not that many earth shaking recommendations Still a decent overview of some classics.
