A deeply personal journey to interfaith collaboration that offers hope for an inclusive and healing way of being together in the world.

Too often religion seems to fuel more hatred than love, more conflict than collaboration. Interfaith Talk Radio's "interfaith amigos"--a pastor, a rabbi and an Imam--provide a rich understanding of the road to interfaith collaboration by sharing their stories, challenges and the inner spiritual work necessary to go beyond tolerance to a vital, inclusive spirituality.

From their deep commitment and lived experience, they present ways we can work together to transcend the differences that have divided us historically. Together they explore:

The five stages of the interfaith journey The power of our stories The core of our traditions The promises and problems of our traditions New dimensions of spiritual identity And much more

Along with inspiring insights and encouragement for tapping into the promise of interfaith dialogue, they provide practical actions, additional readings and discussion questions to help you embody their revolutionary spirit of healing.

Outstanding introduction to the background, meaning and practice of interfaith spiritual work, with attention paid not only to the emotional heights of realized commonalities but also the depth to be found in facing and appreciating differences. Unlike the joke where a rabbi, a pastor and a sheikh go into a bar, these three holy people spent a lot of time together and shared their insights with their own congregations, to everyone's benefit. The personal stories are framed so as to resonate with people of goodwill everywhere and the hints for personal practice are simple and practical, so those people could easily follow them. Borrow this from your library, then buy a copy and wear it out!
