Light In My Darkness, by Helen Keller

This lyrical, mystical, and highly spiritual book is one of my all-time favorites:

Light In My Darkness
By Helen Keller

From the back cover:

Helen Keller traces her spiritual development, revealing her mystical, ecstatic aspect, in this revised and expanded edition of her spiritual autobiography. “Emanuel Swedenborg‘s message has been my strongest incitement to overcome limitations,” she proclaims.

Swedenborgiansim, with its concepts of a universal spiritual reality and brotherhood, a loving god, and an afterlife in which no one would suffer from limitations and handicaps, appealed to Helen. She drew much inspiration and insight from the Swedish seer’s writings and his enthralling presentation of morality, calling them “the light in my darkness, the voice in my silence.”
—From the Foreword by Dorothy Herrmann, author of Helen Keller: A Life

Originally published as My Religion in 1927, this Helen Keller classic has been revised and edited, in keeping with Keller’s original wishes, by Ray Silverman, providing a strong blend of her original title and her autobiography, essays, letters and lectures in an integrated volume considering her religious values and reflections. Enjoy a well-done editing job which provides a smooth assembly of Keller’s thoughts.
