Synopsis

Beacons of the Light is a spiritual history of humanity told through the lives of those who were changed by God and who then changed the world. The book introduces 100 of the world's most influential spiritual teachers - some like Jesus, the Buddha or Muhammad are well known; others like Rabia, Manikkavacakar, Guru Arjan Dev or Hildegard deserve to be better known. The story of their lives is clearly set in the historical and religious context of their time. A summary is given of their message and continuing influence.

The author has dared to rank the 100 according to his personal assessment of their influence and challenges the reader to do the same and not just to absorb the information but also to reflect on the impact of the people discussed. The book is an invitation to the reader, as a citizen of the world, to claim their inheritance of spiritual riches.

Marcus Braybrooke, an interfaith pioneer for forty years and Christian theologian, has lived and studied with people of many faiths worldwide. He is the author of over forty books.
