"The Fountain" is not a book, but it's an intriguing film available on DVD. It definitely would qualify as spiritual science fiction in my opinion.

It's Netflix blurb says, "In this sci-fi drama that spans a millennium, a man searches for a tree believed to grant eternal life in 16th-century Spain; seeks a cure for his wife's cancer as a present-day scientist; and traverses the universe as a 26th-century astronaut."

While it can be hard to follow, it's visually rich without resorting to CGI, and its scenes frequently become both mystic and meaningful.
