Banyen's Description: 

What is the essential message of the great Christian saints and sages? Is there a unifying doctrine within the different branches of the Christian Church? The gem-like selections of art and quotations gathered in Christian Spirit provide something of an answer.

Containing a wide variety of early Christian art from sources as varied as the Coptic and Celtic traditions and wide-ranging quotations from Christian saints and sages of the first one-and-a-half millennia of Christianity, this book invites the reader to reflect upon the beauty and wisdom of the Christian spirit. The visual and written treasures contained in this volume formed the sacred foundation of the early Church and established a tradition which may even now be traced back to the Gospels. Both a source of inspiration and a source for meditation, these powerful words and pictures combine to make a unique quote book that is meant to be carried in a pocket or placed on a bedside table.

In today’s technological world we often lose our connection with anything of sacred value that can provide a balance for the disequilibriating factors that we encounter on a daily basis. It is our hope that the insights provided in Christian Spirit, both through the words of these great sages and through sacred art from over a millennium of Christianity, will help each of us to better understand the sacred spirit that dwells within every person.

Though specifically Christian in content, this book offers a source of spiritual inspiration that is non-denominational and appeals to all.

Publisher’s Description: 

All spiritual seekers, regardless of specific religious affiliation, will be inspired by the beauty and wisdom contained in this book.
