Product description

Review

This book is ecumenical in the best sense of the word. -- The Friend

A look at people who, across different religious traditions, attempt to live out a commitment to God in the world. It is helpful not least for its exploration of what that may mean in different contexts. The book fascinates by its very human examples and its emphasis on God's broadminded understanding of those who try to live their faith. Whether Kavanagh is explaining temporary monasticism as put forward by Merton, or the emphasis on social and environmental action of the Brahma Kumaris, she is above all encouraging. -- The Tablet

A very good and thought-provoking book. -- Susan Hill blog.

I found the "Follow-Up Questions" so interesting and stimulating that I wanted to go back and read the book again
-- Freya Marshall, Quaker Universalist Group's Journal

I warmly commend this excellent insightful collection of challenging reflections on central theological and moral themes. They shed valuable light and deserve a very wide readership.
-- Feargus O'Connor, Hon. Secretary, World Congress of Faiths

Indicates that each...of us has to seek for our own unique path. In no way is the book exclusive. -- The New Seeker

Jennifer writes poetically and with great wisdom ...a balm for the soul ... a grace-filled book. -- Lucinda Vardey, author of God in All Worlds, Simple Path (with Mother Teresa), The Flowering of the Soul etc.

This is a beautiful book. One would have to be spiritually dead not to find a very great deal here which is worth reading - and putting into practice. -- Faith and Freeedom magazine

This timely book... A helpful book for those seeking a spiritual bearing in modern times
-- Scientific & Medical Network newsletter

I'm an unashamed underliner of valuable passages in my books, and I've done a lot of underlining in this one! -- Spidir (spiritual direction) network newsletter
