The Sustaining Utterance, like its companion volume, The Long Shorter Way, is a commentary on the Tanya. Based on the second part of Tanya (entitled "The Gate of Unity and Faith" and also known as "The Education of a Child") The Sustaining Utterance examines basic theological issues, such as our knowledge of God and of our world.
The Long Shorter Way compels the reader to deep personal inspection. One does not merely read this book; one must absorb it, internalize it, and make it part of one`s very being. The Long Shorter Way is a mature guide to becoming a fully realized human being.

The present work, Sparks of Tanya, aims to introduce the novice to the magic and wonderful world of the Tanya - of realizing one`s potential, actualizing one`s fulfillment, and improving one`s immediate environment - and ultimately that of the world.
