Agents for spiritual books
Agent Deborah Levine Herman of the Herman Literary Agent has written a book called Spiritual Writing. In it she lists agents who represent spiritual books of all categories, so I thought I'd put some of that info here. Maybe it could be stickied. I'm not going to add their websites, takes too long to look them all up, so please do more research yourself:

Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)
I recently looked up Karen Solem. She's no longer at Writers' House, but has her own agency, Spencerhill. The specs for her new site did not mention any interest in spiritual writing.

practical experience, FTW
I realize this is a super old thread, but just wanted to say thanks for sharing these agents. I just did a Google search and this thread was one of the first pages that popped up and I've found it to be incredibly useful and helpful.
