Excellent for those embarking on religious, interreligious, interfaith, multicultural, sociocultural studies, or related fields. The value and impact of this new field can only be immensely positive and uplifting. Greater understanding of one's neighbors begins with that first step: reaching out with a willingness to learn of others' perspectives. Although the subject matter can be challenging, this book is well written with a concise format.
Thank you for the ARC and for the opportunity to share
