Hailed as "a significant addition to the spiritual writing of our time", (Publishers Weekly), this inspiring series brings together profound and lyrical writing about art, intimacy, prayer, love, meditation, and faith from some of the world's most distinguished writers. This provocative volume includes: Nobel Prize-winner Toni Morrison's elegy of love for The Dead of September 11; Bill McKibben's "The Muslim Gandhi," the moving story of the Afghan liberator Abdul Ghaffar Khan, one of the greatest nonviolent leaders of the twentieth century; "Prayer," a poem by the Nobel Prize-winner Czeslaw Milosz; Barry Lopez on the role of the modern naturalist as an emissary for nature; from The New Yorker, Philip Levine's poem "Gospel"; and Harvey Cox on a Christian appreciation of the Torah.
