Love Poems From God

I love this book!  Love Poems From God, edited and translated by Daniel Ladinsky.  It's packed away right now, so I cannot show you a picture, but click in the link over to Amazon to check it out.  It includes prayers and poems by twelve different spiritual thinkers, writers, and leaders from multiple faiths.  These include Rumi and St. Teresa of Avila.  One year for Lent, I read a few pages each evening before bed and it was a deeply moving experience.  The language of each poem is exquisite, as are the deep spiritual truths behind them all.  It may reveal a different side of someone you've read many times before.  I highly recommend it.
