I have spent my entire professional life in sports journalism, and I couldn't be prouder of that profession than I was when ESPN's SportsCenter beat HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel to a story that transcends the mere mortal aspects of sports coverage. And when I say that the Darren Daulton interviews on the two programs - first on ESPN on Sunday night and then on HBO on Tuesday night - were transcendental, I'm not exaggerating. Daulton, you might recall, was a pretty good player for the Philadelphia Phillies until his career was cut short by injuries and his life temporarily spun out of control.

Nancy Lee Smith's paintings of angels, saints and biblical scenes are more than pretty pictures on the walls. Called icons, they are part of a centuries-old Christian tradition that uses specific configurations, patterns and geometry as a conduit for a spiritual experience. "It's not religious art, it's sacred art," said Smith, a nun with the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Monroe, Mich. "One of them is a vehicle for the sacred or the holy to be there with you; the other one is an image of it."

WITH BLEEDING FOOTSTEPS. By Robert David Thomas.Alfred A. Knopf. 363 pages. $27.50.WHEN MARY Baker Eddy died in 1910, the Rochester Times noted that her death marked "the passing of a woman who was probably the most notable of [her generation]."

How-to books promising ways to achieve both worldly ambitions and inner peace are a booming niche in today's self-help market. There's Suze Orman's "The Courage to Be Rich," Iyanla Vanzant's "One Day My Soul Just Opened Up," and even the Dalai Lama's "handbook for living" -- "The Art of Happiness." Last year, the big spiritual how-to's sold between 500,000 and 750,000 copies each.But only one of these many books comes with a guaranteed daily meditation-prayer for every buyer by the author himself.

He's done this before. Every few years or so, Bruce Springsteen, one of rock's pre-eminent singer-songwriters, takes us to bleak places in his music, introduces us to a cast of desperate, downtrodden characters while capturing a sense of the times. He did this on the 1982 Nebraska album, a brilliant, acidic appraisal of Ronald Reagan's America. In 1995, he unleashed the particularly bitter The Ghost of Tom Joad, which chronicled those who fell through the cracks during the boom years of the Clinton administration.

Borrowing some spiritually charged lingo from the New Age folks, the Columbia Orchestra took the Rouse Theatre stage Saturday evening for a concert titled "Body, Voice, and Spirit." Homage to the "Body" came courtesy of "Rainbow Body," a work by Christopher Theofanides, a contemporary composer affiliated with New York's Juilliard School and the Peabody Institute in Baltimore. Already recorded by Robert Spano and his Atlanta Symphony on the Telarc label, "Rainbow Body" was last year's winner of Masterprize, one of the music world's most prestigious awards for composition.
