Expressing thanks for food was the world’s first act of worship and is common to every known society. The prayers are from the world’s major religions (Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, Shintoism, Confucianism, Sufism, Tamil, and Unitarianism), ancient traditions (Greek, Egyptian, Native American, Indian,and African), and the work of great poets, thinkers, and activists (including Shakespeare, Milton, Gandhi, and Mother Teresa). Each grace has details about its history and author. The book is the perfect gift.
