50 Best Spiritual Books of 2009


In my counseling practice, people often tell me how important spirituality is to them, and how helpful it is not only in dealing with problems, but also in living fully, meaningfully and with satisfaction. Indeed, research has shown that, overall, people who have a spiritual or religious practice tend to cope better and be happier.

If you are interested in expanding or deepening your spiritual practice, you might like this website which I recently found, thanks to a friend.  It is called Spirituality and Practice: Resources for Spiritual Journeys.  They have a great list of spiritual practices (not traditions) in the right hand column on their home page.  They are an interfaith website, with information and ideas from, for and about Catholics, Zen Buddhists, Jews, Muslims and more.  They tend to focus on those areas where all the world’s spiritual traditions overlap and agree.

50 Best Spiritual Books of 2009

One article that caught my attention was about 50 Best Spiritual Books of 2009.  I encourage you to look the list over.  I bet that at least one of the books listed will sound interesting to you.  Thank you, Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, for taking the time to review and recommend so many great books.

Every year from the more than 300 books we review on this website, we choose 50 “best spiritual books.” These are the titles that have most impressed and inspired us, and since we only review books that we want to recommend to you for your spiritual journey, this selection actually represents the best of the best.

We have organized this list by a major theme or spiritual practice covered in the book. These headings are just to make it easier for you to find the books you might be most interested in; they are not subcategories of the awards.

Through diverse approaches, drawing upon the wisdom and practices of the world’s religions, these titles explore the quest for meaning and purpose, wholeness and healing, commitment and community, contemplation and social activism.

We congratulate the authors and publishers of these exceptional contributions to today’s spiritual renaissance…  (Click to see the list and reviews of the recommended spiritual books.)
