    Idéntical in format and style to CLASSIC PHILOSOPHY FOR THE MODERN MAN, Lynn’s book is an introductory summary of the writings he’s chosen to present followed by selections from the actual works. There is a noticeable difference in tone, however, at least in my perception. Lynn seems more passionate about or committed to this topic than he was to philosophy. I’d recommend this book to those interested in learning more about several diverse aspects of spirituality.

I’d recommend this book to those interested in learning more about several diverse aspects of spirituality. Reading it was certainly time well spent in my estimation and I’m looking forward to reading or re-reading many of the works Lynn presents, “Ecclesiastes” in particular.

    A collection of spiritual works through the ages. Some of the selections, especially at the beginning of the book, have little or no explanation of their relation to each other or modern man. This weakness is addressed as the book progresses. Don't give up, as the conclusion is a decent attempt to tie all of the pieces together. I was a little disappointed that there was only one biublical piece (selections form the book of Ecclesiastes) and it had zero commentary or analysis.
