Summary

Summary

The Soul's Almanac is a rich, vibrant, and profound collection of parables and quotes selected from all the world's faiths. Comprised of 365 readings, one for each day of the year, this treasury contains hundreds of traditional Jewish, Christian, Sufi, Hindu, Buddhist, Native American, Chinese, and African allegories.

Assembled by a leading minister of the Interfaith religious movement, this meditative book illustrates the truth and wisdom revealed in the practices and writings of all cultures and religious faiths. From the knowledge of the Buji people of West Africa, to Sitting Bull and the Lakota Indian tribe, to Moses and the Book of Exodus, Zerah has compiled an exquisite book with readings from a wealth of sources. With contemplations and excerpts focused each day on a single subject such as Genius, Preservation, or Renewal, readers will find themselves guided through the year under the tutelage of the world's great spiritual masters and traditions.

A wonderful resource for teachers, ministers, and parents of multifaith families, The Soul's Almanac is something that can be savored on one's own, or used as a tool to instruct students, children, or spouses about the value of all religions.
