Irwin Katsof has authored three books, and is currently working on his fourth. In 1998, he co-authored with Larry King, Powerful Prayers: Conversations on Faith, Hope and the Human Spirit with Today’s Most Provocative People, which was ranked the tenth best-selling religious book of the year according to Publishers Weekly. His second book, How to Get Your Prayers Answered, was published in 2000 and reissued in 2002. His third, The Words Can Heal Handbook: How Changing Your Words Can Change Your Life helped launch the national Words Can Heal Campaign spearheaded by Goldie Hawn. His fourth book – entitled A Time of Living Dangerously: Trying to Get Rich While Staying Connected to God – is in progress.
As he turns 59, and reflects on his journey from student radical at the Jesuit Loyola College to Rabbi, to twenty five years of working as a Jewish educator to businessman since 2005, and the past two years in a combination of Jungian analysis and core energetics therapy, he is now blogging on “The Middle Passage: finding meaning and joy in the swamplands of the soul.”
