A fresh exploration of a redeeming, dynamic, and radically different way to hold one’s religion

Samir Selmanovic—who grew up a in a culturally Muslim family in Croatia, converted to Christianity as a soldier in the then-Yugoslavian army, and went on to become a Christian pastor in Manhattan and in Southern California—looks at how our ongoing and sometimes violent power struggles over who owns God and what God 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 is possible

·        Offers a path for people of all faiths and traditions for living together on our fragile earth

·        Karen Armstrong said that the book is “asking the right questions at the right time”

This is a personal story and a moving exploration of a new way of treasuring one's own religion while discovering God, goodness, and grace in others and in their traditions.
