Jack Kornfield & Christina Feldman serve up a delicious banquet of wise tales from the world' s greatest spiritual guides, including Jesus, the Buddh, Ramakrishna, and the Taoist sages. They offer contemporary readers a feast rich with wisdom and filled with timeless moral and spiritual lessons. Gathering lively and inspiring parables from both Eastern and Western traditions, from Christian, Buddhist, Sufi, Jewish, Native American, African, and Zen teachings, Soul Food illustrates the eterna truths: the greatness of the human spirit, the endless wonder and possiblity of live, the necessity of courage, love and laughter, and our quest for wisdom and virtue. Each story offers a glimpse of revelation, an example of virtue, or a moment of truth that will sustain travellers as they traverse the road to a more spiritual life.
