Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

[back cover]

Daily news of terrorism, war, and violence make it difficult to find peace of mind or think constructively about peace in the wider world. By first finding peace in our hearts and lives we can discover the wisest way to bring compassion and peace to our family, our community, and our world. 365 Meditations for a Peaceful Heart and a Peaceful World offers ancient and contemporary wisdom and spiritual practices that affirm the choice of love in a world filled with fear.

The book provides a meditation for each day of the year. Each meditation provides an inspiring quotation, usually from a leading spiritual teacher of Jewish, Christian, Muslim or other faith tradition, a story or reflection, and a suggestion for a related prayer or meditation. Its powerful message will help to lift your heart, strengthen your spirit, and enable you to find renewed inspiration and encouragement. The practical spirituality and wisdom it offers will provide you with comfort, a sense of peace, and a real challenge to help others.

The author, Marcus Baybrooke, has worked as a vicar in both urban and rural locations. He has been very active in the interfaith movement and is President of the World Congress of Faiths and a Co-Founder of the Three Faiths Forum. He is also a member of the International Advisory Committee for the Chicago-based Council for a Parliament of Religions and a member of the Peace Council, which has its offices at Madison, Wisconsin. He has studied in India and Israel, and has traveled widely, speaking at conferences in North America and elsewhere. He is the author of over thirty books on religions, interfaith work, and prayer.

Synopsis:

Here is a book of practical spirituality in the form of brief, enlightening readings, one for each day of the year. Words of wisdom from the world's great thinkers and spiritual leaders are presented with the author's explanatory commentary to inspire meditation and create peace of mind. The readings selected for this book represent the spiritual riches of the three great Western traditions--Judaism, Christianity, and Islam-as well as spiritual insights from Eastern mystics and renowned secular thinkers. Whether upset by personal misfortune or simply seeking emotional peace in the face of chaotic world events, readers can turn to this book on a daily basis and find inspiration. For instance, the Chinese phi-losopher Lao Tsu advises . . .

If there is to be peace in the world.../There must be peace in the home...

If there is to be peace in the home.../There must be peace in the heart.

Soren Kierkegaard, the important Danish religious thinker advises on the initial step in attaining inner peace as a path toward spiritual fulfillment . . .

The first thing to be done is to procure inner silence

And Jesus, in the Gospel of Matthew, advocated tolerance and compassion for others as an important virtue . . .

How dare you say to your brother, "please let me take that speck out of your eye," when you have a log in your own eye?

From the Buddhist Compendium of Practices comes much the same message . . .

If you do not practice compassion toward your enemy, then toward whom can you practice it?

These are just samplings from the helpful daily insights presented in this book. Approxi-mately 200 illustrations capture the mood for meditation.
