It's a small book of prayers, enough for one week -- morning and evening. It is a call to pray for peace and incorporates prayers, brief excerpts from the Psalms, Gospels, and the Qur'an. In addition art work is incorprated that stems from each of these faith communities -- Jewish, Christian, and Muslim.

It is a book that is worth using in prayer. I did for the week and found it a blessing.

Written by John Philip Newell, a Church of Scotland minister, poet, scholar.
