A new experience of the Lords Prayer,
This review is from: Sufi Book of Life: 99 Pathways of the Heart for the Modern Dervish (Paperback)
I first met this book nearly 20 years ago and I was so grateful for it. As a child in England I had struggled to understand the Lord's Prayer and had even tried to put it into words I could understand. I later became very disappointed in what I met in Christianity ... THIS BOOK helped me renew my living link with Christ and The Divine. The translations by Neil are amazing and bring great inspiration. There are 7 translations of nearly every line so you can make a prayer to suit you now, and re-make it again at another point in life. This book is a life companion.

This review is meant to be for Prayers of the Cosmos ; o
I do also have this book and it is also a wonderful and inspiring companion. I hardly go anywhere without it. I can use it as an oracle, for explanation, for deepening my understanding both of the 99 Beautiful Names of Allah and my understanding of the roots of Arabic. The stories and poetry with which each name is explained are exquisite. A book to travel with on the road of life.
