The Varieties of Religious Experience
James's Gifford Lectures on the varieties of religious experience are an insightful and delightful examination of, to use a paraphrase of his own terminology, what is most important about the human experience. Every page is filled with insight into the human condition that we all can and should take seriously and apply. I cannot recommend this book enough.
