Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ford-Grabowsky (Stations of the Light; WomanPrayers), former academic dean at the University of Creation Spirituality, CA, has assembled an interesting anthology of prayers, poems, legends, and stories about the Virgin Mary. What is distinctive about this collection is its broad inclusiveness-extracts from the Koran, Thomas Traherne, Paul Claudel, Andrew Harvey, Ephrem of Syria, and Megan McKenna sit side by side. Many thought-provoking and beautiful selections should suggest to most readers the wide appeal of Mary, the mother of Jesus. For most collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Harvey is also the coauthor of the New York Times bestseller The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. Born in India, he was the youngest person ever awarded a fellowship to All Souls College, Oxford. He has devoted the past thirty years of his life to study and experiencing the world's spiritual traditions and is widely recognized as one of our greatest communicators of mysticism and contemplative living today.
