From Our Editors

This fascinating book by Rama Coomaraswamy focusses on the power of invoking the power of the name of God or Jesus. Traditionally, Jesus (or Centering) prayers are associated with only the Eastern Orthodox church. The author blames this exclusive notion on the popularity of the 19th-century Russian classic The Way of The Pilgrim. In The Invocation of the Name of Jesus As Practiced in the Western Church, Coomarasway makes a case for the idea that, no matter what the religious idiom, the practicing of these prayers is for all religions.
