We can trace many of these conceptions of nature and holiness directly to influential nineteenth-century writers, especially Henry David Thoreau (18171862).

As the most comprehensive study of Thoreaus spirituality from a Christian perspective, The Spiritual Journal of Henry David Thoreau is the first to seriously examine connections between Thoreaus religious practices and those of his Protestant forebears. While a few writers have considered the relation between Thoreaus thought and Christian doctrine, this book instead outlines the links between Thoreaus religious practices (such as keeping a spiritual journal, studying nature, and walking) and those of earlier New England Protestants. It is also one of the first books to treat spiritual journals as a distinct literary genre.
