Everyone Prays - Book Review


Everyone Prays “Celebrating Faith Around the World” by Alexis York Lumbard, illustrated by Alireza Sadeghian

This book is a wonderful introduction to world religions and the culture of prayer. People from other places and cultures may seem different, but we may all share the diversity of our faith.

Full color illustrations on each page help open the door to inquiry. Symbols of each religion are shown on each page with a minimum of words; however, they clearly depict the situations and invite our discussions and questions.

People pray in different places, inside and outside. They pray with different objects, some pray quietly and other pray with dancing and singing. Some cover their heads, some do not.

Some pray when they are happy and some pray for solace when they are sad and seeking peace. Yet, Everyone Prays.

Everyone Prays: Celebrating Faith Around the World is worth the read, and the discussion and learning and understanding that will come from the time spent with this book.

The symbols and explanations of various cultures/religions are explained on page twenty-seven. There is an explanation for what each is and who they follow. Learn about Jews, Christians, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Jain and Shintoism.

Illustrations are explained on page twenty-eight with a complete listing of what each religious situation or location entails:
• Church, synagogue and mosque
• The purifying river of the Ganges
• The Golden Temple of India
• The statue of Gomateshvara Bahubali
• Shinto pilgrims
