In these times of sectarian misunderstanding and strife, there is a great need for Hazrat Inayat Khan's thoughtful insights on the essential unity of religious ideals as a way of interfaith understanding. In clear and eloquent language, he identifies the spiritual thread that unifies the messages brought by the world's great religious teachers. First published in a highly edited form under the title Unity of Religious Ideals in 1927, this latest edition is based on the work of a renowned scholar who has researched original shorthand notes of people who attended the sermons from which it is compiled. Song of the Prophets - The Unity of Religious Ideals will have strong appeal for those seeking to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the religious impulse and of the five major religions collectively and individually. In chapters on prophets and exemplars of various faiths he brings a mystic's powerful insights rather than a scholar's research and shows the common threads that run through their lives and teachings.

Song of the Prophets is beautifully designed both inside and out, with a colorful cover featuring Michelangelo's portrayal of the Prophet Isaiah from the Sistine Chapel. It is a well crafted quality paper edition with a sturdy sewn binding that, for a book meant to be savored and re-read, will last for years of dedicated use.

Of this and other books by Hazrat Inayat Khan, Muhammad Ali has said: "These are the best books in the world", and he credits them with inspiring him toward a life of service and love.

Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
