The Spiritual Robinsonades of Literature

In the world of the 1700s, great novels played the role of self-help, moral and religious books. That role, while overlooked, is still important today. The Robinsonade is a classical plot outline, which began with the novel Robinson Crusoe. The Robinsonade is a spiritual metaphor for the spiritual journey of brokenness and aloneness. The classical plot device is deeply rooted in the spirituality of the parables. In particular, we see the parable of the prodigal son and Christ's own experience in the desert as the spiritual basis for these great classics. Furthermore, these classical tales support the very principles found in our great social programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous and twelve-step groups. This book offers a new look than that of the classics. It opens new spiritual insights and resources for the reader. Writers such as St. Augustine and C. S. Lewis have supported this potential of the classics to offer aid and perspective to our lives. The classics offer comfort for our brokeness and aloneness. Working in tandem with our faith, we can strengthen hope through the classics. In our brokenness and aloneness, we are offered the weakness that St. Paul said could be converted into strength. The classics acknowledge the great attraction of this condition. It is in journeys of many and the searching. The classics were written by men of faith and spirituality, which may explain why they have fallen out of favor in today's society. Still, there is a revival under way as people are going back to these old tales.

The Historic Church

The Historic Church is a survey of Christian history written for Orthodox Christians by an Eastern Orthodox scholar. Although one can find many excellent studies of Christian history in the United States, none of them considers the development of Christianity from an Eastern Orthodox point of view. The work begins by laying a foundation for the study of Christian history by discussing the beliefs and practices of the ancient Church, during the age of the Fathers and the Seven Ecumenical Councils. The author then discusses the development of Roman Catholicism and the theological and cultural reasons for the split between Rome and Orthodoxy, and relations between East and West following the schism. He concludes his work with a discussion the origins and historical development of every major Protestant group and tells how they differ from Orthodoxy.

Essence of the Upanishads

His translation of The Upanishads is the best-selling edition in English.

Essence of the Upanishads

The Katha Upanishad embraces the key ideas of Indian mysticism in a mythic story we can all relate to – the quest of a young hero, Nachiketa, who ventures into the land of death in search of immortality. But the insights of the Katha are scattered, hard to understand. Easwaran presents them systematically, and practically, as a way to explore deeper and deeper levels of personality, and to answer the age-old question, “Who am I?” Easwaran grew up in India, learned Sanskrit from a young age, and became a professor of English literature before coming to the West. His translation of The Upanishads is the best-selling edition in English. For students of philosophy and of Indian spirituality, and readers of wisdom literature everywhere, Easwaran’s interpretation of this classic helps us in our own quest into the meaning of our lives.
