An inquiry into how people of all faiths, backgrounds, and walks of life experience the presence of Spirit in their lives. This book includes a collection of quotes and inspirational stories about Spirit from many public figures.
Human rights activist and former Miss World Lexie Brockway Potamkin gathered quotations and inspirations from hundreds of people around the world in answer to the question, “What is spirit?” Illustrated with brightly colored paintings and black and white line drawings by her dear friend Peter Max of Yellow Submarine fame, What Is Spirit: Messages from the Heart is a little book that will charm and warm you. People famous and ordinary from all religions, ages 7 to 97, took time from their busy lives to contribute. Bob Hope, Wynonna Judd, Robert Wagner, Roma Downey, Dick Gregory, and Jimmy Carter are a handful of the VIPs who responded eloquently. What I love most about this book was the way it inspired my own self-questioning–what is spirit after all? It’s a lovely gift for anyone with contemplative leanings. –P. Randall Cohan
