"Well-crafted, insightful, and evocative . . . This book would work well in church discussion groups, community study circles, and college religious studies classes."-Matthew Braddock, Englewood Review of Books -- Matthew Braddock * Englewood Review of Books * "Tolerance is in all-too-short supply in our world. Most attempts to cultivate greater tolerance urge us to set aside our differences, including our religious differences, and focus on what unites us. Many people find it difficult if not impossible to do that. The authors in this collection, each one a leading member of one or another of the Abrahamic religions, take a strikingly different and fresh approach. Each one probes the resources of his or her own religion to make a case for tolerating one's fellow human beings even when one disagrees on important matters. Over and over I had the experience of scales falling off my eyes. It would be hard to exaggerate the importance and promise of these fascinating essays for advancing the cause of tolerance."-Archbishop Desmond Tutu -- Desmond Tutu
