Howard Thurman – Introductory Reading Guide

November 18, 2016


Howard Thurman

Today (Nov. 18) is the birthday of Howard Thurman, noted pastor and theologian.

To mark the occasion, we offer the following introductory reading guide to his most significant books.

We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and offered a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve also included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.


4. The Creative Encounter


Thurman here articulates the religious experience in its totality, not just the functions of the mind, but also our feelings and emotions. He offers a vision here of how we respond to the call of God with all our being as humans.
