I recently completed the sequel to Mosaic: a global version called A World of Prayer. This interfaith book is a compilation of favourite prayers, reflections, insights and wisdom chosen by over 100 world spiritual leaders, activists and humanitarians from different religious traditions around the world.
Contributors include Nobel Peace laureates the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Mairead Maguire and Lech Walesa; spiritual leaders such as the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev’d Rowan Williams, Fethullah Gulen, Rabbi David Rosen, Dadi Janki, Sr Joan Chittister OSB, Fr Dan Berrigan SJ, Fr Laurence Freeman OSB, Dr Joanna Macy, and Daisaku Ikeda; and activists Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens); Zainah Anwar and Professor Chandra Muzaffar from Malaysia; Dr Tariq Ramadan, Pete Seeger, Elizabeth May, Swami Agnivesh and Dr Inderjit Kaur plus many other “quiet achievers.”
A World of Prayer will be published by the renowned Catholic publisher Orbis books who are based in New York. The book is scheduled to be released in May 2012.
