I struggled with the idea of putting this book on the sidebar. I opted against it. While it is a worthwhile read, it doesn’t offer anything unique compared to what I already have up on the site. It is well-written, and draws on a variety of inter-faith resources, so if you’ve got time, do check it out for yourself.
