Product description

Review

A very courageous and challenging account of the tensions between Muslims and Christians that refuses to settle with any damaging stereotypes, focusing instead on the extraordinary potential for reconciliation and understanding in the lives of ordinary believers. (Rowan Williams, Archbishop Of Canterbury )

In this revolutionary work, Griswold ... has brought back the unforgettable stories of Christians and Muslims along the tenth parallel whose faith is shaping the world's future. Griswold's courageous pilgrimage changes the way we think about Christianity and Islam by exploding any simplistic "clash" narrative. She returns us to the most basic truth of human existence: that the world and its people are interconnected (Archbishop Desmond Tutu )

The Tenth Parallel is one of the most important books you will ever read ... No one else could have written this book (Reza Aslan, Author Of 'no God But God' )

Ingeniously conceived and beautifully wrought, The Tenth Parallel traces the uneasy fault line of two great faiths, which have so much bloody history between them ... Eliza Griswold gives us a rare look at how complex and interwoven these two cultures actually are (Lawrence Wright, Author Of 'the Looming Tower' )

Intense and often beautifully written ... It is a fabulous piece of reportage. (Jason Burke Literary Review )

Griswold's confrontations with preachers of evil, her forays into war zones and here determination to listen and explain took guts ... Mediators could learn much from her pilgrimage. (Michael Binyon The Times )

The Tenth Parallel is a beautifully written book, full of arresting stories woven around a provocative issue. (Linda Robinson The Scotsman )
