Notes:  "The spiritual life is a profoundly personal matter, and thus spiritual autobiographies reveal the soul itself and our struggles as we ache into holiness. Under the guidance of celebrated literary scholar Dr. Michael W. Higgins, you will explore 14 inspiring writers whose autobiographical works capture their spiritual yearnings and encounters with the transcendent. As you do so, you will find new intimacy with each writer, fresh perspectives, and horizons for discovery."--Container. disc 1.
