Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Devotions: Wisdom from the Cradle of Civilization is the sixth installment in Danielle and Olivier Fand#246;llmiand#8217;s project Offerings for Humanity, which spans the worldand#8217;s cultures and traditions. In this new volume, the authors have traveled the Middle East and captured images from Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Yemen, United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, and many other places. As in the other books, each photograph is accompanied by a quote for each day of the year.

and#160;

Devotions presents not only religious quotes taken from the Koran, the Hebraic tradition, and Eastern Christianity, but also from noted authors such as the Sufi poet and jurist Rumi, the Persian writer and mathematician Omar Khayyand#225;m, and the Lebanese-American artist Khalil Gibran. A daily dose of wisdom coupled with breathtaking photography, Devotions allows readers to move a little closer to the heart of the wisdom found in the Cradle of Civilization.

Synopsis:

One Year Wiser is a book of 365 inspiring meditations. On every page are words of wisdom from thinkers both ancient and modern, from the Buddha to Abraham Lincoln to Anne Frank. Brought to life by Mike Medagliaandrsquo;s stunning Japanese- and Chinese-influenced artwork, the spiritual teachings that fill this book will inspire readers to make mindfulness a daily habit. Drawn in an accessible, contemporary style, One Year Wiser provides a visual guide to the spiritual teachings of thinkers as diverse as the Dalai Lama, Virginia Woolf, Albert Einstein, Seneca, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Marcus Aurelius, and Mark Twain.
