Each page an inspiration Aug 28, 2009
I read this book straight through and knew it was a "keeper" meaning I keep it on my reading table near my bed for rereading. Should I have a sleeplss night, I read a section and find that I am inspired and peaceful and motivated to become a better person. There is so much to take from her stories of the different religions. The most important being that we are all ONE and equal under God.

I love it and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in reading about "universal spiritual insights" as viewed from five main religious traditions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity & Judaism.
