Compiled in celebration of Pope John Paul's 1984 visit to Toronto, the author hoped to create a composite portrait of the spiritual foundations of the growing city of Toronto, from the colonial part of Fort York to the current metropolis of over 2 million souls. Diverse, multicultural and complex. Wide ranging in scope, from Ameri-Indians to Zoroastrians, each chapter is devoted to one of 42 different religious practices that developed in this New World city, written by a practitioner of each faith. Edited by Margaret Lindsay Holton, with a Foreword by Mayor David Crombie, this ambitious tome is a 'go to' text for those seeking to understand the spiritual, and thus moral, backbone of this ambitious city. Comprehensive.
