The World of Religion & Spirituality: A Starter Booklist For The Curious Mind

Eschatology / End Times / Second Coming

“Christ … will reign for a Thousand years.” (Book of Revelation)

“… He (Christ) ascended into heaven … He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end. … We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.”


More Books on Religion & Spirituality

Reading the following books, you might end up discovering something profound (e.g., ‘There is a spiritual world beyond our material universe’; ‘Life doesn’t end once we die, but our Consciousness live on’), something that would completely change you, your outlook towards life.
A note of caution: Do not assume each and every concept and idea presented in these books to be “absolute truths”.
Explore yourself. This list is a good starting point.

Dr. Michael Crichton, MD

[Dr. Michael Crichton, Physician by training, Harvard Doc; Author of Jurassic Park and The Lost World] 

Among other events from his life, Michael Crichton, a Scientist and once skeptic, describes how he discovered the existence of “Aura”, “Astral Plane” to be true and “Precognition” possible.

Again: Existence of “Aura”, “Astral Plane” is true; “Precognition“ is possible!

Karen Armstrong

Dr. Brian Weiss, MD 

Brian Weiss’ book includes some deep secrets, and a few beautiful truths.

“Our task is to become God-like through knowledge. We know so little.” (p. 46)

Dr. Deepak Chopra, MD 

Todd Burpo, Lynn Vincent


Sufism (Islamic Mysticism)

Kabbalah (Jewish Mysticism)

Meditation, Mindfulness & Positive Psychology 

The most important endowment humans are blessed with is “Consciousness”.
Being in control of Consciousness and directing it toward the right purpose is key to health, wealth and most importantly, happiness and satisfaction.
So anything that hampers the ability of being in control of our consciousness is harmful (e.g., drinking alcohol damages our ability of judgement).
And anything that aids us (e.g., Meditation, Mindfulness, Yoga, Deep breathing) is good and highly recommended.
Here are some Introductory Books for exploration.
