A&C Black, May 28, 2002 - Religion - 192 pages
What do a prince and a stonemason have in common? Or an archbishop and an innkeeper? A prime minister and a film star, a rabbi and a footballer, an astronaut and a sheep farmer? They all, at some time or another, pray. Deborah Cassidi asked people from all walks of life to choose a favourite prayer or to write one. She was astonished and moved by the response. The result is this beautiful collection of prayers, illustrated with Jackie Cundall's woodcuts.
