Editorial Reviews

Review

Provocative . . . . [In My Neighbor s Faith] long-held assumptions are rethought, unlikely friendships are formed, and suspicions overcome. More often than not, the writers are surprised at what they learn about other religions, and about themselves. --Booklist

By S. Taylor on November 28, 2015
Format: Paperback
This review is intended for those who read this book as part of the fourth-year curriculum for EfM.

Another reviewer compared this book to the "Chicken Soup" books, which I think is apt. Chicken Soup for the Religiously Multicultural. After four years of intensive study of the Christian faith, one might think that the "senior" EfM members would be ready for some demanding, theological challenges. In the old "red books," that is exactly what was demanded of them. Not now. This book, the last that I will ever read for EfM, is so simplistic that it could easily be read by anyone, with no background in any faith whatsoever. It is mostly "feel-good" stories of people of various faith traditions finding common ground. How rigorous.

I feel that EfM has been hijacked by persons with an extreme liberal agenda. Being politically left-wing myself, one might think that this would not bother me. It does. First, I feel that EfM should be inclusive enough that people of a more conservative political outlook should not be totally alienated. I know several people to whom I would have recommended EfM prior to this year. They are open-minded enough to deal with the scholarly analysis of the bible found in the first two years, especially the dismissal of the historical accuracy of much of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament in Year One. However, they are not likely to respond to the political agenda pursued so aggressively this year. (The interlude texts contributed to this impression.) Second, I feel that books like the one under present consideration are direct attacks on conventional Christianity. In many of the little sketches, Christianity is presented in an unflattering light compared to another faith.

I have read this for a book club from our church. I love having a short description of the authors in the back of the book. I found that each chapter was more meaningful after reading about the writer before reading the chapter. Lots of food for thought.

While easy and not very challenging one can find "nuggets" of truth here and there. One can also find personal bias and agenda.

A series of essays dealing with multicultural and/or interfaith relationships. The text reinforced my feelings that religion and faith are two different genre and one must be careful when examining and comparing strongly held beliefs in the name of religion. A complaint is that "as all else I've read in EfM this year, radicalism is still not addressed."

Every person of faith, all around the world, believes (their) God is love. Yet, even though as children we love and play with all equally, we gradually learn to change as we grow up to hate those different from us. This book gives promise that by seeing what we share in common, and try to build bridges across our chasms, we can find peace. With so many in the World without any faith, should we find strength in bonding with other faithful persons during this life, rather than shunning or hating them for their differences?

Great book to finish up my EFM experience. Fantastic personal stories on people's experiences with their own faith traditions and others. With so many contributors- some stories are naturally better than others, but overall excellent read. I know so many that should - though sadly won't- read this book.

Using short, candid first-person stories, the editors provide a deeply human framework for honoring and respecting one another's faith and religious/ethical beliefs.
