Understanding the Holy Faiths of Our Neighbors, Today

Join Fr. John in exploring our common treasures of faith to better understand our neighbors. Our book is Mirabai Starr’s God of Love: A Guide to the Heart of Judaism, Christianity and Islam(2012).

 

We also have the three-part 2017 series, Children of Abraham. This three-part documentary series travels the globe to speak to various figures in the Christian, Jewish and Muslim communities, and attempts to find common ground within the gospels they live by.
