This elegant, concise guide by the founder of the University of Philosophical Research distills a lifetime of spiritual seeking into one beautiful, unforgettable blueprint for inner growth. For more than a half-century,Obadiah Harris has studied the spiritual path, holding ministerial pulpits in varying traditions, directing programs in continuing education and distance learning at major universities, and preserving the ideas and legacies of spiritual icons ranging from Manly P. Hall to Ernest Holmes. As a scholar and seeker, Harris has traversed and helped shape broad swaths of our modern spiritual landscape. Now he distills the insights he has found - all of them potent, powerful, and, above all, useful - in The Simple Road. This concise meditation is a spiritual GPS that guides the earnest seeker past dead ends and switchbacks to locate the path that most intimately and directly connects us with the Source of all life. The methods and ideas in this book can help rescue you from a crisis and provide a daily source of practice. Harris's brave work addresses head-on topics that are often shunned or ignored in works of theology, including the question of physical healing by spiritual means - a subject treated with deepest seriousness - and hostile forces that test us on the spiritual path. Whatever tradition you belong to, or if you belong to no one tradition, The Simple Road helps you find the thread of universality that runs through all faiths and leads you to practices, prayers, methods, and parables that lift your daily journey to a higher, better place. The book includes an introduction by historian Mitch Horowitz, who explores Harris's experiences with spiritual figures such as Manly P. Hall, Ernest Holmes, Oral Roberts, and others. 'When you grow exhausted with all of today's spiritual programs, axioms, seminars, and techniques; when you feel fatigued from searching and cannot find a way forward; when it seems that years of seeking have netted so little - throw yourself upon the essential truths in this book . . . It can be lifesaving.' Mitch Horowitz, from the introduction
