Halfway up the Mountain

The author's narrative is interesting and may save some wannabe seekers from getting bruised.

The Dark Tower

Stephen King

 

An epic journey, as rough as the path of any seeker.

 
  The Bible
the biography
Karen Armstrong
 

A gorgeously written account of the history of the Bible and the Christian religion, with surprises, celebrations and revelations throughout.

One example: It was only in 1860 that the idiotic idea of the Bible being "literally true" replaced contemplative and mystical approaches to the scriptures, thereby destroying the Bible's usefulness as a source of spiritual support.
