Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The provocative, often entertaining discussion that results [in Powerful Prayers] illuminates the roles of faith, hope, and spiritual longing in modern life...informative, insightful, and life-affirming.” —Library Journal

Powerful Prayers is a book for the ages. The words of enlightment from these powerful personalities will inform and touch you. And the humor and passion of King's odyssey with Rabbi Katsof will inspire you to take an introspective look at your faith, or move you to take a spiritual journey of your own.” —Jewish Journal

“Mr. King brings his famous interview skills to bear on what he calls 'the big conversation.' The result-a stirring, humorous, sometimes exhilarating exploration of why and how people pray and the impact prayer has on their lives-plumbs new depths for the celebrity interview.” —The Christian Science Monitor
