    Review quote
    Winner of the 2014 Nautilus Award represents "Better Books for a Better World"--the Gold Award (Best Book of the Year) in the category of Religion/Spirituality: Other Traditions & Practices. "This book brings such serenity. In a masterful gesture, Stephanie Dowrick has collected prayers from these days back to earliest centuries. All the prayers, including some by the author herself, are arranged in a mosaic pattern that leads us towards the oneness we all long for. I urge you to open this book and read one or two prayers whenever you feel the need to see your shrink . . . or are seeking instant peace." --Hanan al-Shaykh, author of "The Locust and the Bird"
