Assurance: An Anthology
A&C Black, Nov 1, 2001 - Religion - 188 pages
This profoundly encouraging anthology contains poetry, biblical passages, excerpts, and more sent in from contributors who selected the pieces that most inspired them in times of crisis or difficulty: from Royals Duchess of Kent and Princess Michael, to writers John Bayley, Muriel Spark and Beryl Bainbridge; politicians including Tony Blair, Hillary Clinton and Anne Widdicombe; the Dalai Lama; Kiri Te Kanawa, Joan Sutherland and many more. Royalties from the book will go to charity, and the original letters sent in as contributions were auctioned at Harrods to raise further money for charity.
