Emmet Fox

Emmet Fox, who lived from 1886 to 1951, was born in Ireland.  His father was a member of parliament, and Mr. Fox studied electrical engineering in England. In his early adulthood, Emmet Fox became interested in spirituality.  Around 1930, he moved to the United States, and soon thereafter began lecturing on spiritual themes in New York City. Emmet Fox is the author of the famous Sermon on the Mount (review or buy) and many other books on spirituality.  He is credited with serving as a major inspiration for the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).  His writings are often classified as Christian "New Thought."

Power Through Constructive Thinking

In Power Through Constructive Thinking (review or buy), Emmet Fox draws upon many sources -- the Christian Bible, the Koran, folktales and more -- to illustrate important spiritual themes.  As Mr. Fox says in his introduction, "All power lies in creative thought.  Thought is the key to life; for as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." 

Alter Your Life

Based on biblical texts, Alter Your Life (review or buy) offers a spiritual course for readers.  Drawing on stories from the Bible, Emmet Fox explains how we can exchange bad habits of mind for the healthy ones demonstrated by Jesus.
