About-

Introducing new reprints by Gerald Heard:
The Creed of Christ
The Code of Christ
Training for the Life of the Spirit
Prayers and Meditations


"There was a period in my early thirties when these four small books by Gerald Heard served almost as my bible. I read and reread them, and invariably found them to be uplifting and inspiring."

- Professor Huston Smith

"Gerald Heard was an inspiring voice for the life of the spirit. Wipf & Stock is to be commended that Heard's remarkable work is being made available to a new generation of spiritual seekers."

- Dr. William H. Forthman



"These prayers and meditations are traces of an experiment," writes Gerald Heard in his Introduction to Prayers and Meditations. "Seven were written by one of our ablest authors." That experiment was Trabuco College, which Heard founded in California in 1941. The ablest author was Aldous Huxley, Heard's sometime co-adventurer in mystical voyages.

Along with Huxley's seven contributions are selections by St. Albert, St. Anselm, Dionysius the Areopagite, William H. Forthman, and Margaret Gage. Heard penned all the others. Altogether these powerful reflections, "are present-day renderings of those thoughts and feelings which have been rising in men since they began to reach out to Him who is beyond the senses." Prayers and Meditations equips the contemporary spiritual aspirant with a wellspring of inspirational devotions, ever invoking, "the desire to remember constantly the all-pervading, transcendent Presence of God."

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Here is a book of almost white-hot spiritual intensity. The meditations are splendid...and often breath-taking in their spiritual insight."
- Christian Advocate
