Religion writer Jim Castelli set out to answer these profound questions by talking with twenty-six spiritual leaders and practitioners representing the wide spectrum of faith in America today. How I Pray gathersthese remarkable conversations into a thought-provoking, personal, and deeply meaningful volume.

In How I Pray Christians and Jews, Muslims and Buddhists, Native Americans and Mormons, and members ofmany other faiths describe the intimate and unique ways in which they pray — and what prayer means to them.

Infused with honesty and passion, warmth, and a deep reverence for life's spirituality, How I Pray is sure to be a source of illumination and delight for readers ofall religious backgrounds.
