A guide to everyday, anywhere prayer from the world's faith traditions.

Why do so many Americans claim that they pray every day, but when we actually see someone praying outside of a formal religious service we tend to view it as being eccentric or bizarre? Acclaimed author Mitch Finley takes a thoughtful look at how each major faith tradition incorporates prayer into daily life. Christian sacraments, Jewish holy days, Muslim daily prayer, "mindfulness" in Buddhism, and Hindu rituals are just some of the practices Finley examines. Exploring how people of many faiths pray will help you better understand and enhance your own prayer practices.

From the Author:

I wrote this book to help people with no roots in a particular faith tradition learn more about what the major religions believe about prayer and spirituality. But I also wrote it for those with roots in a specific tradition to enrich and deepen what they already have.

About the Author:

Mitch Finley is widely recognized as an expert at bringing difficult spiritual ideas "down-to-earth." The recipient of six Catholic Press Awards and an Excellence in Writing Award from the American Society of HJournalists and Authors, his many award-winning books include The Seeker's Guide to the Christian Story and The Joy of Being Catholic.
