Talking to God

Portrait of a World at Prayer

by John Gattuso

  • Reviewed by The Editors on Sept. 1, 2007

    This widely honored but little known book is a sumptuous paean to spiritual practice. Recognized by a variety of book publishing award programs, it is a labor of love by first-time author-editor John Gattuso. The list of contributors is a who’s who of inspirational leaders, teachers, and literary figures, including Desmond Tutu, Pope John Paul II, Kathleen Norris, C.S. Lewis, Jack Kornfield, Karen Armstrong, and, of course, the Dalai Lama. With a foreword by Huston Smith and more than a hundred stunning photographs from around the world, this coffee table–size tome brings the spiritual to life and readers to a closer experience of the sacred yearnings that unite us as human beings.
