Review:

When Larry King, an agnostic, decided he was going to "scope out this prayer thing," he did it as only Larry King can: by talking. And talking and talking. King starts by relating conversations with Rabbi Irwin Katsof--the rookie chatting up the seasoned pro--and then moves on to discussions of prayer with the myriad celebrities and religious figures he interviews. Since everything is in King's voice, we have to assume he's quoting all these people accurately. Of course, this is Larry King, the only guy on earth who can mention the Dalai Lama and Florence Henderson in practically the same breath and give their opinions equal significance. And although he pitches prayer with the same enthusiasm he uses to hawk garlic tablets in radio commercials, by tape's end this is an educational experience, comparing and contrasting the role of prayer in various belief systems and among disparate individuals. (Running time: three hours, two cassettes) --Lou Schuler
