MEDITATIONS OF THE HEART

by | Read by Leon Nixon, Susan Dalian

Philosophy & Religion • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Leon Nixon's rich, authoritative baritone provides the perfect interpretation of this series of brief meditations by beloved pastor and theologian Howard Thurman (1899-1981). He was a founder of the nation's first interfaith, interracial, intercultural congregation. This audiobook's poetic meditations and prayers focusing on the theme of developing a relationship with God and community will appeal to a wide range of Christian worshippers. The stunning new foreword to the 2022 edition, written by Yolanda Pierce, PhD, and narrated by Susan Dalian, calls for these mediations to be read aloud, thereby drawing "attention to the rhythm, cadence, and flow of Thurman's own words." Nixon's unhurried performance, delivered in measured rhythms and resonant tones, does this with great effect, enhancing the text's contemplative nature.
