Samir Selmanovic—who grew up a in a culturally Muslimfamily in Croatia, converted to Christianity as a soldier in thethen-Yugoslavian army, and went on to become a Christian pastor inManhattan and in Southern California—looks at how our ongoingand sometimes violent power struggles over who owns God and whatGod wants for the world and its peoples are not serving God,humanity, or our planet.
- Shows how our religions have become self-serving,God-management systems, however Selmanovic contends—change ispossible
- Offers a path for people of all faiths and traditions forliving together on our fragile earth
- Karen Armstrong said that the book is "asking the rightquestions at the right time"
This is a personal story and a moving exploration of a new wayof treasuring one's own religion while discovering God, goodness,and grace in others and in their traditions.
