Gandhi never laid out a systematic theology. Thankfully, he had redactors who did it for him later, and this is the text that is the result. It's a comprehensive collection of Gandhi's writings on a variety of religious/spiritual topics. Since these articles/letters weren't written with the intent of being collected into an anthology, there is a fair bit of repetition, and so it is not nearly as accessible as "Satyagraha in South Africa" and certainly not as accessible as the autobiography (the latter of which arguably has more practical theology). But that said, there's lots of very good, very challenging stuff in here.
