“Bonnie Louise Kuchler's
One Heart: Universal Wisdom from the World's Scriptures arranges passages from the major religious traditions
along key themes and principles with hopes of helping us all discover the common heart of our traditions. It is a wonderful
little book for those who find their own faith strengthened and renewed by engagement with other traditions and who would
like something to flavor their own practice of meditation, prayer, or dialogue. Readers will perhaps most enjoy the sections
interjected throughout on "Spiritual Practices."

life is blessed; I have held my children's children.' So opens this little gem of a book with a quote from Jeremy
Taylor a 17th-century English bishop. There's a lot to like about this one . . . The illustrations are photographs from
the animal world, depicting parents and offspring in wonderful, unposed attitudes. Images are sharp, clear, quite colorful,
fun to look at. But the text draws you and holds you. Grandparents is thoughtfully put together. The pictures
enhance the words; the words enhance the pictures."

Bonnie Louise Kuchler offers a loving ode to mothers. But you'll likely not even notice the text at first as you soak
