A World of Prayer
Nearly a hundred prominent men and women from every religious tradition and around the globe here share a favorite prayer, while reflecting on its personal meaning. Nobel Peace Prize winners Lech Walesa, Mairead Corrigan, Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, and the Dalai Lama join Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, theologian Hans Kang, spiritual writers Richard Rohr and Sr. Joan Chittister, artists and musicians such as Pete Seeger and Yusuf Islam, and many more. The prayers include classic and familiar texts from every religious tradition. But some of the selections are surprisingly personal, offering a glimpse into the heart of many great souls of our time.
