Hardcover, 272 pages, March 2008.

Who is God? What is death? What is worth dying for? How do you explain fanaticism and violence waged in the name of God? Candid responses and profound comments by the worldメs great spiritual leaders are accompanied by magnificent, never-before-published images of these wise men and women, as well as ordinary people engaged in religious practices around the world. Their voices span geographical and theological distances yet come together to create a spiritually satisfying and meaningful worldview.

Luminaries such as the Dalai Lama, Pope Benedict XVI, the Chief Rabbi of Israel, and the Archbishop of Canterbury appear alongside leaders in the Shinto, Hindu and Sikh communities. Heads of the Christian and Muslim faiths are represented, including Catholic, Lutheran, Southern Baptist, Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, Shiite and Sunni. Each leaderメs first-person account of his or her spiritual path is illustrated with powerful photographs of private and public moments. In among the portraits are the thoughtful answers to the questions posed by the Naudet brothers, who gained unprecedented access following their prizewinning documentary film, 9/11.

Timed for Easter and Passover, In Godメs Name offers readers a rare opportunity to know 12 of the most holy people alive today, and their answers to eternal questions of life and death, war and peace, doubt and belief, and the nature of God.

Dimensions (in inches): 5 1/2 x 8 5/8.
