Overview

Great stories are an especially enjoyable and effective way of connecting our family not only to our own spiritual traditions but to the time-tested wisdom of all the world's peoples.

Aaron Zerah brings together 52 of the world's tales of spiritual wisdom to share and celebrate with your family -- from the aboriginal hero who chased a kangaroo and discovered the sunrise to the Zoroastrian "Noah" who helped save creation from the death of winter. Angels, gods and goddesses, and all kinds of animals -- greedy monkeys, magic fish, terrible lions, and laughable coyotes -- and their spiritual lessons will come alive for your family in these extraordinary tales.

Each of the 52 weeks contains not just a story to be shared, but a way of sharing it effectively and enjoyably. Each story comes with questions and activities to enrich a whole week, plus a meal blessing and a family prayer that carry out the theme of the week. And because the stories are not seasonal you can begin at any time.

Aaron Zerah, a leading minister of the interfaith religious movement, embraces all

traditions and peoples. As chancellor of Interfaith Seminaries and President of Spirit of

Interfaith, Inc., he ministers to families, communities and organizations throughout the world. The son of Holocaust survivors, he places special value on playing, singing and dancing -- living each day to the fullest. His previous book, The Soul's Almanac: A Year of Interfaith Stories, Prayers and Wisdom, is a collection of parables and quotes selected from all the world's faiths, illustrating the wisdom revealed in the practices and writings of various cultures and religious traditions. Zerah lives in Northern California with his wife, Madhuri, and their daughter, Sari.
