November 18 is the birthday of Howard Thurman, noted pastor and theologian.
To mark the occasion, we offer the following introductory reading guide to the most significant Howard Thurman 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.
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.
