Book Review: Making Prayer Real by Rabbi Mike Comins

I'm featured in Rabbi Mike Comin's new book, Making Prayer Real. Here's a copy of the review I posted to Amazon:

I love this book! Making Prayer Real is the best book I have read in years.

It's like eating an Oreo cookie. (Or in my case a Newman's Hint-of-Mint cookie.) Rabbi Comins commentary on its own, would have been fabulous. Dayeinu - enough. (The chocolate cookie.) And the other contributors' voices alone, also would have been enough. (The creamy filling) But put the two together and you have a delicious, well written, inspiring, re-assuring piece of work.

I had no idea I shared the same thoughts about prayer as so many other Jewish people. We also differ, but that's okay too. I am simply inspired and relieved.

Here's a link to the book >>

This book rocks. You will read it in one sitting. Or maybe two. I had to get up in the middle to get more cookies and refill my milk glass.
