Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In Women Pray: Voices Through the Ages, from Many Faiths, Cultures and Traditions Monica Furlong gathers valuable glimpses of women's spirituality. Not all of the entries are formal prayers; the collection includes spiritual poetry by the likes of Denise Levertov and Emily Dickinson, and historical prose about the martyrdom of Perpetua and Felicitas. Any collection of this type, which encompasses so many religious traditions, risks losing those traditions' unique particularity. This collection falls prey to that tendency to some extent, but Furlong also appreciates the special gifts each tradition has to offer: "the Buddhist insistence on `getting free,' the ritual grace of both Judaism and Christianity, the ecstatic Native American delight in the world of trees and mountains and creatures."

From Library Journal

Furlong, a distinguished author of works on Therese of Lisieux and Thomas Merton, has assembled a touching and moving collection of prayers and meditations in a number of forms. There is no shortage now of volumes on women's spirituality and prayer life, but Furlong's anthology is distinguished by its refusal to rely on the familiar wellsprings of women's spirituality she includes not just Mechthild of Magdeburg and Frances Havergal but also Zuni prayers, Jane Austen, Helen Waddell, Hatshepsut, and many more. Her collection, then, is a springboard for personal prayer and an education in women's spirituality through history as well. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
It is a refreshing breathe of air to be reminded that prayer comes in many forms. Each prayer is different, because each of us is different. Oftentimes religion teaches us a 'set form' or 'formula' for prayer. This reminds us that what prayer is for each of us is an attempt to talk with God...nothing more, nothing less! It is also an historical record of how prayer has changed, and not changed, as the times have changed. This is a book one will pick up again and again, not to read from cover to cover, but to find something that fits for the day, for the moment. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is open minded enough to believe that there are many paths to one God.

Excellent prayers. Comforting read. My favorite is the prayer of an unknown women found on a piece of wrapping paper in Ravensbruck concentration camp -- it's a model of forgiveness.
