This collection drew its inspiration from personal circumstances which had compelled Liz Gray to reflect on
the preciousness of careful speech. If all that one had left to say had to be expressed in the compass of a very few words, what words would one choose? Fixing them at 99 was suggested by the number of names attributed to God
by Islam. It was originally planned that there would be 99 contributions as well; but in the event ‘unexpected latecomers’ brought the total up to 101 (with 103 contributors, as two of the pieces are collaborations). The work of assembling the book has occupied seven years.
The results are as various as their authors.

Among the names of the contributors – some of them very famous names indeed – are those of individuals associated with Temenos and with this journal: Coleman Barks, Keith Critchlow, Robert Abdul Hayy Darr, Grevel Lindop, Sir John Tavener. This is a book which shows what a potent vehicle humility can be.
