Three in one and one in three
It's God week here at Lantern (and everywhere else, actually). Not only is today the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), but Passover begins on Thursday, and Good Friday is on, erm, Friday, followed by Easter Day on Sunday. Anyway, we thought we'd use these holy days shamelessly to draw your attention to our ecumenical tomes.
First off, Islam Is . . .
by Sister Mary Margaret Funk is a Benedictine nun's take on her dialogue with Muslims over seven years. If you're celebrating Passover, you won't want to be without your copies of Judaism and Vegetarianism
and Judaism and Global Survival
by Richard Schwartz: essential volumes on the Jewish contribution to nonviolence and environmental conservation.
Check out the work of Fr. Thomas Keating
and Sujo John
, O ye Christians. For ecumenists everywhere, we'd recommend Making Their Own Peace
, which describes the work of women of all three faiths who struggle together to make Jerusalem a place of peace and not conflict.
