New. 1580630863 Amazon Review When Larry King, an agnostic, decided he was going to "scope out this prayer thing, " he did it as only Larry King can: by talking. And talking and talking. King starts by relating conversations with Rabbi Irwin Katsof--the rookie chatting up the seasoned pro--and then moves on to discussions of prayer with the myriad celebrities and religious figures he interviews. Since everything is in King's voice, we have to assume he's quoting all these people accurately. Of course, this is Larry King, the only guy on earth who can mention the Dalai Lama and Florence Henderson in practically the same breath and give their opinions equal significance. And although he pitches prayer with the same enthusiasm he uses to hawk garlic tablets in radio commercials, by tape's end this is an educational experience, comparing and contrasting the role of prayer in various belief systems and among disparate individuals. (Running time: three hours, two cassettes)--Lou Schuler--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Library Journal Not many would ever label King a religious person, and having him write a work on prayer may seem incongruous. However, after some prompting from his daughter, he asked a rabbi to teach him about prayer. What we have in this collection is King's journey from being a skeptic to being maybe not so much of one? it's "a pragmatist's view of prayer." Bringing in observations and experiences of many of his guests, King (with Marty Appel, When You're from Brooklyn, Everything Else Is Tokyo, Audio Reviews, LJ 11/1/92) treats us to a view of the spiritual from many different religions as well as from people from all walks of life. This recording certainly displays him at his best: witty, engaging, always able to keep the listener's attention. Recommended for the religion section of all public libraries. ? Michael T.
