Review: The Best Spiritual Writing 2013 (The Best Spiritual Writing)

User Review  - Thom - Goodreads

As a compendium, of course some pieces are more interesting than others. Much of the poetry is good and thought provoking. The prose pieces are more variable in their degree of hold upon me. Overall, good enough to make me want to look at past editions and look forward to future ones. Read full review
