Books on religion and spirituality are few and far between in a review of the top 100 best-sellers between 1994 and 1998.
The list of books, as reported in USA Today (Feb. 11), confirms the preference for non-traditional and generic spirituality over more traditional titles. The bestsellers in unconventional and generic spirituality include the fictional Celestine Prophesy by James Redfield, Embraced By Light, Betty J. Eadie’s book on near-death experiences, and Deepak Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws Of Success.
Other similar titles include Neale Donald Walsch’s Conversations With God: Book 1, Care Of The Soul by Thomas Moore, and the long-time bestseller The Road Less Traveled, by M. Scott Peck. The few titles of a more traditional Christian perspective are: Crossing The Threshold of Hope by Pope John Paul II, and the devotional book Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach.
