Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Famed talk-show host King and his guide, Rabbi Katsof, dare to ask bold questions of themselves and cultural figures about prayer. Specifically, they ask such people as Jimmy Carter, Jack Kevorkian, Muhammad Ali, Gerald Ford, Shimon Peres, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Alexander Haig, Willie Nelson, and others if and how they pray. The provocative, often entertaining discussion that results illuminates the roles of faith, hope, and spiritual longing in modern life. The reader will relate personally to these interviews, as both King and Katsof keep the discussion going with sincerity and depth. Interestingly, King himself moves from agnosticism to religious skepticism. All public libraries will do well to stock this informative, insightful, and life-affirming title.
