Spiritual Quest

Legendary Leadership - From Commoner to King

cover By Monte E. Wilson

Description: Over the centuries, Arthurian myths and legends have resonated with millions of readers. Why? Because there is something within each of us that believes that such leaders as King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are possibilities within our very real worlds. We intuitively know that the establishment of a "kingdom" based on justice, compassion and nobility, are metaphors for what we humans are capable of becoming and doing. Camelot is not simply a fairy tale. It is an illustration of what we know to be obtainable.

Legendary Leaders is not a book about how to become famous. It is about what it takes to be a leader who leaves a legacy worthy of your beliefs, ideals, standards, and vision.

A word about the Christian milieu in which these legends were written

Because the majority of these legends were written in the Middle Ages, the stories are often punctuated with metaphors from the Christian Tradition. This is especially true with the Quest for the Holy Grail, as well as with Lancelot's moral failures and subsequent reconciliation with his God. Given this fact, this book does contain analogies and references to the Christian Faith. However, this book is written for people of all faiths -- or no faith.

Nearer, My God: An Autobiography of Faith

coverAn Autobiography of Faith
By William F. Buckley

ISBN 0-3854-7818-6

Description: This is the memoir of one man's faith. The renowned social and political commentator, William F. Buckley Jr., turns to a highly personal subject - his faith. And he tells us the story of his life as a Catholic Christian. Nearer, My God is the most reflective, poignant, and searching of Bill Buckley's many books. Personal though this book is, Buckley has gone to others to examine new perspectives, putting together his distinguished "Forum" and leaning on the great literature of past to illustrate his thinking on contemporary Catholic and Christian issues. Nearer, My God is a book that prompts its readers to recognize their own spiritual problems and to profit from the author's examination of the meaning, for him, of the love of God.

William Buckley has contributed again, provocatively, intelligently, to the conversations he started forty-three years ago, with his book God and Man at Yale, on the place of faith in people's lives.

"Anyone approaching this book as a study in psychology of conversion will find the greatest interest in the dual paths - intellectual and intuitive - which converge at last.

But the casual reader looking merely for an enjoyable book will equally value many other parts . . . "

-Chad Walsh, Saturday Review
