Press Quotes

"A beautifully realized portrait of faith in a dozen human variations."—Associated Press

"The golden volume, filled with photographs by Stephan Crasneanscki, provides sanctuary as religious leaders from around the world offer their thoughts about life and death, happiness and doubt, faith and fear. But just as remarkable, if not more so, is what the Naudets note in the introduction. There, they reveal that their new tome, which offers so much solace, was borne from the violence and hatred of Sept. 11, 2001."—Mobile Register (Alabama)

"In line with its publisher's top-notch graphic values, In God's Name presents gorgeous photo ensembles of some of the world's spiritual leaders… This is the foolproof ecumenical gift book."—Philadelphia Inquirer

"The Naudet brothers are remarkable men… this book's text has a calming effect." —

"Best of all are the stunning color photographs not only of the religious leaders but also of different religious practices, rites, and devotional activities."—
