Even though these two people are different in so many ways, I found some similar themes in both books. They wrote about the importance of prayer and spiritual practices, of letting go of the things of the world, and of controlling one’s emotions in order to become more mature spiritually. These are a few of the aspects of the spiritual journey that they had in common.
Please be encouraged to be open on your pilgrimage to find spiritual truth from any number of different areas. I found aspects in both books that can help me on my journey to become a lifelong disciple of Jesus Christ. Vernon T.
