SPIRITUAL LITERACY: READING THE SACRED IN EVERYDAY LIFE

by | Read by Jane Atkinson, Howard McGillin

Philosophy & Religion • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

A refreshing and welcome addition to spiritual literature, SPIRITUAL LITERACY is not the customary collection of excerpts from the world's great religious texts, but rather a collection of writings about spirit in everyday life. Authors Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat selected pieces from essayists, poets, social activists, naturalists and novelists. The Brussats' compilation forms a new primer for spiritual literacy. Many of the writers whose works are included find the truly transcendental in the seemingly commonplace. For example, an excerpt from Frederick Buechner begins, "It was gorgeous traffic--that's what was not usual. It was a beauty to see, to hear, to smell, even to be a part of. It was so dazzlingly alive it all but took my breath away." With excerpts ranging from the beauty of traffic to the meditative quality of washing dishes, listeners will be quickly aware of what makes this recording so very special. The print version of SPIRITUAL LITERACY received wide acclaim and included more than six hundred selected writings. This audio version highlights many of those selections and deserves an equally large and appreciative audience. C.S. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 99]
