United We Stand. Together We Heal.

As a nation we watched as heroic rescuers sifted through the rubble in search of signs of life. As individuals, we are still sifting through our emotions in search of peace, solace, and understanding. Our emotions have run the gamut from shock and disbelief, to grief, anger, fear and hope. From the Ashes: A Spiritual Response to the Attack on America is a collection of original essays, poems, and statements from religious leaders and extraordinary citizens whose wisdom will help lead us - and our nation - on a spiritual search toward justice, hope, and healing. Contributors include: Archbishop Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Bruce Wilkinson (author of The Prayer of Jabez), Karen Armstrong (author of The History of God), Reverend Andrew M. Greeley, Thich Nhat Hanh, Kathleen Norris (author of The Virgin of Bennington), Neale Donald Walsch(author of Abundance and Right Livelihood), Sharon Salzberg (author of Loving Kindness), Michael Wolfe (author of The Hadj), and many others. Also included are previously published essays about the tragedy from Pope John Paul II, Reverend Billy Graham, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. All profits will go to disaster relief funds.
