99 Names of God


By Br. David Steindl-Rast

Production Description

“For most people this inter-religious dialogue will be something that they only read about, because they have no opportunity to engage in it. … If you are interested in promoting the inter-religious dialogue — which I think we should be interested in … then we should expose ourselves. Exposure is the key word. All the people who have been exposed to other traditions — really exposed and not just told about them and not just made fearful about them — “meet” somebody who is from a different religion. So make a special effort to “meet” other people from other religions,” writes Br. David Steindl-Rast in 99 Names of God, which offers a meditation on each of the 99 names of God found in the Islamic creed. This devotional volume speaks to people of any religious belief who through the many names of God enter the gate of the one nameless God that unites us.
