Fiction and Biography:

Confession: I read very little fiction and basically stopped reading fiction after reading War and Peace and Anna Karenina. I think the truth is that nothing compared after that! But, do yourself a favour and read those two books at least!

 

Spiritual and Self Development:

Sealed Orders (Agnes Sanford) Read in my very early twenties. I would say that this book above all others gave me an expansive view of God, the universe and time and I have never looked back. It launched me into the deep!

Jesus and the Undoing of Adam (C. Baxter Kruger) A new wave in Christian thought? Nothing to be scared of – your old wave was once a new wave – did you know the church once thought that maths was of the devil?

Beyond an Angry God (Steve McVey)

Jump Into The Blue (Christine Lavers) A true account written by a friend of a friend! Intriguing and thought-provoking.

The Kingdom of God is Within You (Leo Tolstoy)

Man’s Search for Meaning (Viktor Frankl)

The Body Keeps the Score (Bessel A. von der Kolk) An incredible book which all sufferers of prior trauma (which is usually all of us to some extent) should definitely invest in.

I highly recommend these next two books for working through creative blockages and ‘tapping in’ to a different kind of consciousness to that driven by Capitalism.

The Artist’s Way (Julia Cameron)

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain (Betty Edwards)
