first edition of the Interfaith Prayer Book was released in 2001. It proved to
be immensely popular for use both at interfaith gatherings and for personal
reflection, having found its way into hospitals, motel rooms and college
classrooms as well as places of worship all around the world. That edition
contained a selection of prayers from six religious traditions; Hindu, Jewish,
Buddhist, Christian, Muslim and Bahá'í. This Expanded Edition adds prayers from
eight additional traditions; Native African, Native American, Zoroastrian,
Taoist, Confucian, Shinto, Jain and Sikh. Its aim is to further enrich our
devotional practice, to share a taste of our planet's diverse spiritual
heritage and to deepen our sense of interfaith connectedness. Nothing brings us
closer to God or closer to each other than prayer.
