Books for the Spiritual Life

I’m still working on the list of books. I’ve split the list into the classics and beginnings. After looking through my list I realized that many of the books such as St. Teresa of Avila, and St. John of the Cross would be difficult for someone just beginning to journey toward God. The language is, at times, difficult to understand and at times the authors try to describe experiences that most individuals have not had.

Beginnings

Invitation to a Journey: A Road Map for Spiritual Formation The Deeper Journey: The Spirituality of Discovering Your True Self Coming Home to Your True Self: Leaving the Emptiness of False Attractions

 

Classics

The Collected Works of St. Teresa of Avila, Vol. 1 Collected Works of St. Teresa of Avila (Collected Works of St. Teresa of Avila ) Vol.2 The Collected Works of St. Teresa of Avila, Vol 3

The Collected Works of St. John of the Cross The Cloud of Unknowing (The Classics of Western Spirituality) Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux, Third Edition
Augustine of Hippo, Selected Writings (Classics of Western Spirituality (Paperback)) Francis and Clare: The Complete Works (The Classics of Western Spirituality) (Classics of Western Spirituality (Paperback))

    1. Thanks. I haven’t worked too much on the site over the past year or so. Been spending time on some other projects. I’ve been hoping to get back to it, but I end up doing other things. 😉
