schema:description"In early 1997, veteran broadcaster and celebrated talk show host Larry King was having dinner with his daughter, Chaia. King, who is not shy about asking people pointed questions, found the tables turned when Chaia said: "You're always having conversations with powerful people, why not ask them about their prayers?" King, who generally thinks of himself as agnostic, was moved by his daughter's question. Because of his unique relationships with celebrities, political leaders, and other notables, King was able to query many of the world's most prominent people about their relationships with God and their intimate prayers. President Jimmy Carter, Alan Dershowitz, Muhammad Ali, President Gerald Ford, Shimon Peres, Barbara Bush, Noah Wyle, Steve Young, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dr. Jack Kevorkian, Tommy Lasorda, Lou Holtz, Scott Hamilton, Alexander Haig, Senator John McCain, Reverend Jerry Falwell, Dr. Robert H. Schuller, Reverend Cecil Murray, Marianne Williamson, Pete Seeger, Willie Nelson, Anthony Robbins, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, and Dr. John Gray are among the people who offer their heartfelt beliefs about faith and spirituality. The humor and passion of King's odyssey with Rabbi Katsof will inspire you to take an introspective look at you faith, or move you to take a spiritual journey of your own.--From publisher description."@en
