Love Is My Savior: The Arabic Poems of Rumi
This volume of Rumi’s works–the first-ever English translation of his Arabic poems–will be exciting for the newcomer and the familiar alike. The poems take the reader on a journey of spiritual exploration, ecstatic union, cruel rejection, and mystic reconciliation. Rumi reveals his soul and welcomes everyone to his spiritual feast.
In his mystic poetry, Rumi found a vehicle for the expression of the spiritual bounties of love. He placed love at the center of his doctrine and pronounced it to be his life’s goal and the only form of true worship.
Love Is My Savior was a featured book in Oprah Magazine.
