Writing in the Sand wins spiritual book award

Thomas Moore's book Writing in the Sand: Jesus and the Soul of the Gospels receives a Book Award from Spirituality & Practice as one of the best spiritual books of 2009. Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat review Writing in the Sand and offer an excerpt about the Jesus vision which includes Moore's view:
"Once you understand that the Gospels do not ask you to compete for the truth or swear allegiance to a creed or institution, you are free to study and think for yourself as you adopt the Jesus vision. You are neither fanatical nor lukewarm in your embrace of that intelligent and fascinating proposal for a new imagination of what human beings can do. There is indeed something saving about it: you can be saved from unconsciousness, meaninglessness, negativity and despair, depression, narcissism, and perfectionism."
Spirituality & Practice devotes a page to Thomas Moore as one of its Living Spiritual Teachers while offering links to Moore resources.
