I found this book healing in many ways. As a cultural Christian, I found myself identifying most closely to the Islamic woman which surprised and pleased me. I bought 3 additional books to give to friends. Absolutley delightful reading!
Jusr purchased 20"used" copies for a church's womens group to study. Will do as reader's theater, as chapters are broken down by topic & each mother's speaking voice..
Awesome book to promote understanding between the faiths and acceptance of each other.
Anticipation in the sharing gives me goosebumps!
At first I found the book a bit trivial reflecting their own simplistic lives. Once they really got engaged in the process the book improved as well. Their experience changed their lives, attitudes and interactions with others - it can be a starting place for those who have no contact with people different than they are. The summaries of the 3 religions in the back of the paperback version is simple but can be helpful for those who know little about the basics of the faith. Worth reading and sharing.
I found this book to help to fill a big void for me in interfaith understanding. We're bombarded with extreme views of major religions, and there are plenty of people around to tell us about them--in the media, globally and among our families and friends too. I don't want to participate in the fear and dis-ease this all generates. I found these women to be models of openness and caring; able to change their faith as they grew together and separately; able to grow while being truly honest with themselves and each other; and then to go out into their own communities to share with those they could, what they have been learning. Thank you, Priscilla, Ranya and Suzanne. I feel as though I know you. Being a retired minister, I would recommend this book highly to anyone who wants to go on this pilgrimage. It would be great for any discussion group including a religion setting.
