Reviews - What do customers think about Anselm: The Joy of Faith (The Crossroad Spiritual Legacy Series)?
Faith is Good Dec 25, 1999
Anselm shows clearly in this splendid book on the religion and spirituality of this world that Faith is indeed truly Joyful. He uses the most visual images to prove the fun and happiness that is stored on the very batteries of Faith, the thing that drives our very Churches and Temples of various religions. A great read, I find best red whilst listening to Richard Addinsell's Warsaw Concerto. A true masterpiece of spiritual enlightenment.
