Women Pray: Voices through the Ages, from Many Faiths, Cultures, and Traditions
The distinctive voices of women at prayer throughout the ages and around the world—compiled by the biographer of Therese of Lisieux.
This beautiful book celebrates the rich variety of ways women around the world have called out to the Divine—with words of joy, praise, gratitude, wonder, petition, longing, and even anger—from the ancient world up to our own day. The prayers come from women of nearly every religious or spiritual tradition East and West, including ancient Greeks, Australian Aboriginals, medieval Christian mystics, Native Americans, Jewish poets, and Buddhist nuns. Together they provide an eloquent expression of women's inner lives that will resonate with modern readers, both women and men. Monica Furlong's intriguing commentary and insights make this a book to treasure and share.
