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.


6. Disciplines of the Spirit


In this little book, Thurman focuses on five basic spiritual disciplines: commitment, growing in wisdom/stature, suffering, prayer, reconciliation. These disciplines will undoubtedly help keep up rooted in trying times.
