Minefields and Miracles is one of the most honest and sincere undertakings in the 21st century on interfaith work and real dialogue. Broyde Sharone is passionate about the children of Abraham and her own faith as a Jewish woman.
Intersecting multiple sacred worlds with secular politics she manages to offer the reader a place of solace as we are brought into her personal stories and hear the voice within her soul. She writes: “Call me foolhardy. A dreamer. Naive. I will not argue with you. I am all of those things and more. I come from a long line of dreamers. Perhaps that is why I am willing to enter the minefields of the interfaith world even though I have been forewarned and occasionally burned by the explosions.”
Her honesty and idealism is what we need today as we are placated by so many misperceptions of one another, I recommend her book, and applaud her conviction as a human being in a complex yet hopeful world.
