Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0806999055, Hardcover)The histories and mysteries of spirituality are thoroughly explored in this bountifully illustrated book. Solidly organized into four sections--"Spiritual Traditions," "Spiritual Practices," "Spiritual Teachings," and "Information at a Glance"--Encyclopedia offers brief, expertly written essays explaining everything from Yoga's role in Hinduism to the spiritual use of psychedelic drugs. Stellar images and graphics enhance every page, giving this encyclopedia coffee-table elegance.
Author Timothy Freke has an outstanding track record for taking complicated topics and turning them into clear and intriguing reads--as shown in previous works such as The Illustrated Book of Sacred Scriptures and Zen Wisdom. The overall vision behind his The Encyclopedia of Spirituality shines through as Freke opens the many doorways to understanding God. The book also explains numerous spiritual practices such as magic, sacred plants, repentance, and vision quests. Although the book's subtitle promises life transformation, Encyclopedia could also be billed as a book that teaches readers the value of spiritual diversity on a global scale. When all is read and done, seekers will find themselves grateful that spirituality still thrives in so many unique arenas. --Gail Hudson
