I often cut and paste the title and author of a book into the search box at Amazon.com, if I want opinions from readers. They've actually bought the book, so their opinions are appreciated,,,Amazon.com is an excellent place to find out more about a book from readers! Some reviews from Amazon.com on this book........................ “ I buy other books of prayer and keep coming back to this one. Beautiful collection and variety of prayers. ”.................................................. “ This is a wonderful book and I was delighted with it. I could have given it as a gift, but I loved it too much to give away, though I highly recommend it as a gift. It is a beautiful collection of ecumenical prayers for all people from all devotional paths. “ .................................... “ The book has a lot to offer. Organized into topics, there are many poems and prayers from many sources. Good to pick up at random and find something for meditation and reflection, you don't have to read cover to cover in order. “..................................... “ The book is a collection of prayers from around the world for use at various times in one's life when one can't find the right words. A must for a spiritual person’s bookshelf or nightstand! “............................................. “ This is one of my favorite books. I try to read some every morning. The different perspectives are refreshing. It helps me remember, refocus and understand what matters in life. I have bought it for several people. I think I might buy a couple extra to give away. “.................................... “ His book was very interesting. it gave me a new way to look at things, and some of the writings really made me think, a few made me cry....there were some that were a little out there for me, but overall the book was awesome. “..........................Ann Hoy
