Ramadan Reading event includes book review

The Reading through Life site offers a review of Talking to God: Portrait of a World at Prayer as a feature of a 2010 Ramadan Reading event.

Carina, the Toronto blogger shares, "I originally bought this book because of the gorgeous pictures – a variety of photographs of people praying around the world. While I still enjoyed the photographs during my actual reading of the essays, I found myself drawn in even more by what the contributors had to say... This book is definitely an interesting read for anyone who is interested in religion in pretty much any form. It includes photos from a variety of religions and places – including, but not limited to, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam – and text that will resonate no matter your belief system."

Thomas Moore writes an essay in this book. Other contributors include Mohandas K. Gandhi, Thich Nhat Hanh, Jack Kornfield, Thomas Merton, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, and Kathleen Norris.
