about this book

Meditations of the Heart is a beautiful collection of meditations and prayers by one of our greatest spiritual leaders. Howard Thurman, the great spiritualist and mystic, was renowned for the quiet beauty of his reflections on humanity and our relationship with God. This collection of fifty-four of his most well-known meditations features his thoughts on prayer, community, and the joys and rituals of life. Within this collection are words that sustain, elevate, and inspire. Thurman addresses those moments of trial and uncertainty and offers a message of hope and endurance for people of all faiths.

“I have read Howard Thurman and been informed, influenced, and girded by his courage, intelligence, and abiding love.” -Maya Angelou

“The minister will find this a source of ideas and illustrations for sermon material. The layman will find it helpful for personal devotions and family worship.” --H. G. J., San Francisco Chronicle, 1954
