I hope you enjoy this list of my favourite spiritual books.
Some of them are famous and will be on other people's list of recommended books.
There are others which I have rarely heard spoken of, but have changed my life nonetheless.
Feel free to comment in the forum below on spiritual self help books that have nurtured you or changed your own life.

NB. Favourite is the UK spelling not a typo :-)
These are some of the books on using spiritual principles that have helped me to experience a life of greater joy and abundance.
The Bible is also full of verses we can use to claim abundance.
Whenever I remember to do so, I become aware of what my thoughts are asking for, apply the principles, and ask for more!
We are always in relationship. Even if we live in isolation, our relationships continue within our mind.
The spiritual paradigm gives us radical new ways to ease or solve relationship problems.
Please help yourself to my free book on forgiveness which has helped to dissolve many problems in my life, especially at a time when I was too physically ill to avoid or move away from someone!
My spiritual journey has exposed me to teachings from many paths. We learn from each other as we let God/the Divine guide us to what is right for us.

By Joyce Meyer
Joyce Meyer runs her own Christian ministry. She suffered sexual abuse when young, so will be particularly relevant to you if you have sadly experienced the same.
By Henri J. M. Nouwen
Henri Nouwen is a Catholic. His gentle compassionate books are read widely by those of all denominations and none.
Books have been such an important part of my journey.
These books have challenged, guided, inspired, and educated me.
Books were my friends when I was ill and isolated and had few friends. So much so, that my first book It's OK to Believe, A Journey with Faith and Reason is dedicated to Marianne Williamson and to M Scott Peck:
To Marianne Williamson and
M Scott Peck (1936-2005)
whose humanity and wisdom kept me going.
Books are the most amazing source of knowledge. Someone can take years of their life, synthesise it and share it with us.
When I read The Road Less Travelled by M Scott Peck (in popular psychology), I felt the writing of that book was an act of generosity.
Books let us know we are not so different. This can increase our sense of belonging and being understood.
Books let us know the ways in which we are different. This helps us to position ourselves in the world, to understand the unique contribution we can make, and understand other people's reactions to us.
Books give us advice at times in our life when we have few people around us to speak words of wisdom.
When we read a book, it is easier for us to choose the advice that is good for us, rather than be pressured to take unsuitable advice, as we often are when someone speaks to us in person.
A source of informed, impartial advice can be so important in a time of illness or vulnerability.
I frequently close a book and thank God for the wisdom I have received. I ask Him/Her to bless the author in their life and work.
One of my spiritual books, IT'S OK TO BELIEVE, A Journey with Faith and Reason, is available online at the bookstore lulu.com.
Please click on the cover on the right to view or buy the book.
Following various requests to do so, I am providing a space where writers can introduce their spiritual books, popular psychology books or health books to other visitors.
Alternatively, do you want to share your own favourite (UK spelling) spiritual books by other authors?
(I will not always review the submissions, but if a book definitely doesn't look suitable to me, I will not approve it. Apologies if the contents are indeed consistent with the message of this spiritual website, but I will need to make a quick decision.)
Do you have a book to recommend - your own or someone else's - a spiritual book or a popular psychology book. Please say why you think it will be of interest to visitors of this site.
