Write The First Customer Review

Using California as window into the diversity of religion in America, Nahmias looks at marginalized communities at prayer in their own faith traditions. A photojournalistic work, Nahmias envisions this project as a prayer book that will enable readers to see, hear, and learn about several different groups, including San Quentin Buddhists, a transsexual gospel choir, a Mormon congregation for the deaf, and Jewish recovering addicts. The text includes essays from theologians, plus oral histories, and photos.
