Reviews

"This is the summa of one of the greats of religious dialogue.The fruit of a lifetime of reflection and action,this book shows that dialogue is not merely an intellectual search for truth but a dance of life, a way of authentic, enriched living and a transformation of self. This volume is a gift to all who seek a humane, globally responsible, morally universal ethic for their own life. (It also shows you how to go about developing one.)" - Rabbi Irving (Yitz) Greenberg, founding President, Jewish Life Network
