            Hey, there's still space in his library ;D

            Hmmm the books you recommend are ancient. These are all about spiritual formation?

            Hi Sora,

            They are about soulcare or spiritual formation. Yes, they are old. These are the classics that have stood the test of time.

            I shall post some newer ones.
