Karen Libman, professor of theater, recommended this book of perspectives from world religions that shares how to live a life with kindness, compassion, and courage. "It is just so full of different ideas to help us become more kind. It uses Judaism's 13 Attributes of Lovingkindness as the framework for cultivating a life of goodness, but Shapiro also draws from all the worlds religions and spiritual practices," Libman said. She added that she usually reads a chapter each night, then considers the teachings and exercises the next day. more info
