Jewish prayer isn't just for Jews anymore, says psychologist Leonard Felder in Seven Prayers That Can Change Your Life: How to Use Jewish Spiritual Wisdom to Enhance Your Health, Relationships, and Daily Effectiveness. Felder draws on classic Jewish prayers to help Jews and non-Jews who are struggling with their relationships or have too much stress in their lives. The concept of not needing to reinvent the prayer wheel is a good one, though some readers will question Felder's Hebrew-to-English translations (for melekh ha-olam, for example, he eschews the traditional ""Ruler of the Universe"" in favor of the more antiseptic ""Pulsing Source of all that exists in the world"").
