Some others I liked were Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue
Also, Watchmen poses a very real and divisive idea about life and society. A friend and I debated the two sides of the final debate for several hours. Even if you aren't into comics, you need to read this.
On the lighter side, I re-read Wind in the Willows every so often. I find something new every time I read it. I starts out with Martha (mole) busy cleaning house until she is drawn by the calling of God's creation up on the surface and, transformed into Mary, drops her duster and climbs up to bathe in the glory of it all. Throughout these simple, beautifully written tales, we find lessons about loyalty, friendship, optimism, joy, grace, bravery, and many other traits that we all hope we will exhibit when called upon.
There's a priest/writer/creator named Pierre Teilhard de Chardin who wrote excellent spiritual theosophy, including the concept of a "noosphere." Basically, Chardin wedded Catholicism to Mayahana Buddhism.
Try "Fire in the Universe or "The Phenonomen of Man"
Many people do not know that the early church (180-320 A,D. had some 60=plus gospels available to it, but settled for the four we now know. however, the gospels of Mary, Barabus I and II, Judas, and Thomas are easily available. There are others. The notable things about these gospels are they are contempory, circa 30-60 A.D. rather than beginning in circa 80 A.D. as the Big Four do. AND
they deal with Jesus' years between child and Messiah.The Gospel of Thomas has Jesus sounding rather Buddhistic (and who was that lobg-haired Nazerene that visited eastern India at that time???)
