Exploring the concept that "the shortest distance between a human being and truth is a story," Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham recount and interpret great wisdom stories from many cultures, as well as telling a few of their own, shedding light on such experiences as awe, wonder, humor, confusion, and forgiveness. In an attempt to find a purer and more universal conception of spirituality, the storytellers quoted here include Marilynne Robinson, Alan Watts, D.H. Lawrence, Martin Buber, Lao Tzu, Dag Hammarskjöld, and William James.
