Templeton established his annual Prize for Progress in Religion to honor those whose work and commitment have advanced spiritual understanding with striking originality. Stressing the importance of diversity in religious beliefs, the Prize celebrates a wide spectrum of spiritual thought and work by recipients who may be Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Moslem, Jewish -- or adhere to no established religion at all.Among the diverse group whose biographies are presented in this remarkable book are Mother Teresa, the first Prize recipient (1973).

With her Missionaries of Charity, this devout Catholic nun cared for the poorest of the poor in Calcutta, India. The Reverend Dr. Billy Graham (1982) used the full power of broadcasting to share Gods word with the world. A former Watergate figure during the Nixon administration, Charles Colson (1993) created a prison ministry that today reaches millions.

And the work of the eminent mathematical physicist Professor Paul Davies (1995), who practices no particular faith, has helped disintegrate the barrier between science and religion.Readers of these inspirational portraits will gain a deeper spiritual awareness, a better understanding of the meaning of life, and a heightened experience of devotion and love.
