Editorial Reviews

Tikkun
Anthony Stern is probably the most sincere progressive voice attempting to bridge the insights of social psychiatry and spirtuality. It is no surprise, then, that this Jewish devotee of Martin Buber and Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav has found a universal spiritual song in the prayerful work of Mother Teresa. In this gem of a collection, Stern has gathered a number of Mother Teresa's prayers and thoughts about prayer. Transcendence without escape was the universal message of Mother Teresa, and no one has captured its essence better than Tony Stern in this quiet, powerful collection.
