This is the Gift Edition of the Interfaith Resources Book of Comfort and Healing Book. It is perfect bound and a nice book edition of our widely distributed booklet.
About the Contents: If you or someone you love is facing difficult health issues, you will find this compilation of over 200 short prayers and quotations from ten different faith traditions a source of great comfort and encouragement. Originally compiled for use in hospital chapels, over 60,000 of the Give-Away edition are in print.
Organized by subject rather than by religion, headings include: God Can Help Us, God Loves Us, God Protects Us, God Heals Us, God Calls Us Home and God Comforts Us – along with several others. Prayers include categories of: prayers for assistance, guidance, forgiveness, healing, prayers for the departed, prayers for serenity, and more.
Faith traditions represented include Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, the Sufis and the Bahá’ís, plus some Interfaith prayers. This book makes a wonderful gift for family and friends of any faith – whether they are facing a long-term illness or are just temporarily under the weather.
About this larger GIFT EDITION: The original edition was designed to be given away for free to patients and in chapels. This edition is the better choice as a special gift for students, clergy, and close friends. It is also what you will want for yourself, to keep on your bookshelf for easy reference. It has 96 pages instead of 64, larger type that is easier for older people to read, and decorative borders that give it that “gift book” feel. It also has square binding instead of a staple to give it a more finished look. This Second Edition now has the title printed on the spine and the text is printed in dark blue, making it both prettier and easier to read. It is also offset printed instead of Print On Demand. This allows us to sell it for 40% less than the previous edition.
This booklet coordinates well with our Interfaith Prayer for Healing Bookmarks.
