This elegant, concise guide by the founder of the University of Philosophical Research distills a lifetime of spiritual seeking into one beautiful, unforgettable blueprint for inner growth.

For more than half a century, Obadiah Harris has studied the spiritual path, holding ministerial pulpits in traditions ranging from Pentecostalism to New Thought, and directing programs in continuing education, community outreach, and distance learning at major universities.

He has worked with the ideas and legacies of spiritual icons ranging from Manly P. Hall, author of the landmark The Secret Teachings of All Ages, to Ernest Holmes, founder of the Science of Mind movement, America’s most successful and intellectually rigorous New Thought congregation.

As a scholar and seeker, Harris has traversed and helped shape broad swaths of our modern spiritual landscape. Now, he distills the insights he has found—all of them potent, powerful, and above all, useful—in The Simple Road.

This concise statement is a spiritual GPS that guides the earnest seeker past dead-ends and switchbacks to locate the path that most intimately and directly connects us with the source of all life. The methods and ideas in this book can help rescue you from a crisis and provide a daily source of practice.

This brave work addresses head-on topics that are often shunned or ignored in works of “proper” theology, including the question of physical healing by spiritual means—a topic treated with the deepest seriousness—and with the existence of hostile forces that test us on the spiritual path.

A balm for parched souls, The Simple Road helps you locate the thread of universality that runs through all faiths, and leads you to practices, prayers, methods, and parables that lift your daily journey to a higher, better place.

This brief, powerful audiobook can bring you literally life-saving solace when facing life’s entanglements.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Harris distills the basics of New Thought theology, a universalist belief system that finds shared wisdom in major world religions and argues that people’s thoughts and connections with the divine control their health and well-being…provides a coherent spiritual worldview for the nonsectarian modern seeker.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “When you grow exhausted with all of today’s spiritual programs, axioms, seminars, and techniques; when you feel fatigued from searching and cannot find a way forward; when it seems that years of seeking have netted so little, throw yourself upon the essential truths in this book…It can be lifesaving.”

    Mitch Horowitz, author of One Simple Idea, from the introduction
