Foreword by Phyllis Tickle

A fresh, readable introduction to Christian spirituality, God Seekers brings to life thirty-three spiritual masters from throughout Christian history. Through capsule biographies, selected quotations, and questions for reflection, Richard Schmidt presents and explores diverse ways of relating to God. Each chapter personalizes a major stream or movement of Christian spirituality by focusing on a particular key figure.

“While God Seekers may be read with delight or for information . . . it is impossible to engage it for long without being seized as well by the grandeur of the panorama it lays out before us. Here, in living people, in living saints, is the history of the church, the body of Christ as we and our kind have shaped it and are shaping it.”
-- Phyllis Tickle (from the foreword)
Timothy F. Sedgwick
— Virginia Theological Seminary
"Richard Schmidt has done it again! For those seeking entry into the Christian tradition and those wanting sources for meditation, there is no better introduction to Christian spirituality than God Seekers. The breadth of voices and the balance between introduction and short selections ‘in their own words' are just right."
Catholic News Service
"Schmidt truly provides the reader with an inspiring kaleidoscope of eclectic spiritual insights."
Spirit & Life
"In our rapidly shrinking world, it becomes urgent that we embrace differences in cult and creed. Schmidt's book is a step in that direction."
