Overview

Sacred Poems and Prayers of Love is more than a collection of poems for a "beloved." It includes poems and prayers for friends, neighbors, family, the world around us, and God, in addition to poems for a "romantic" love. Chapters include "Love for Life and the Beauty of the World," "Love for a Beloved," "The Art of Spiritual Friendship," "Family Love," "Loving Another as Oneself," "Love in the Valley of Suffering," and "Love of the Holy One."

The book's comprehensiveness ties perfectly into the current trend toward spirituality in everyday life, and the importance of recognizing and celebrating love in all its manifestations.

The collection includes approximately 200 prayers from around the world and the last 5,000 years. In addition to prayers from each of the five major religions, the author has included Native American, Celtic and African poems and prayers, and prayers by contemporary religious leaders that have been written or translated specifically for this volume.
