It’s hard to promote “interfaith” as a concept when there is no category for it in bookstores, libraries, or on Amazon.com. With your help, we’re hoping to change the conversation by turning an idea into a concrete achievement that will affect public perception as well as academic circles and supporters of the global interfaith movement.
Amazon drives everything, so we’re starting there by launching an interfaith book called MINEFIELDS & MIRACLES: Why God and Allah Need to Talk. If you have already purchased a copy, THANK YOU, if not, please buy a copy on May 15th.

Why May 15th?
Because currently, the book is under the “Religion” category and if everyone buys on the same day, it will flag to Amazon that it is a “best seller.” Later, after you write a review and request that Amazon start an “Interfaith” category, it will be taken even more seriously. Reviews are currency and influence on Amazon.com, so please write in your review that you want Amazon to start an Interfaith Category.

MINEFIELDS & MIRACLES: Why God and Allah Need to Talk
P.S. Once we have a new category, we are hoping it will expand to include all books on Interfaith work.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Ruth Broyde Sharone's engaging memoir and colorful overview of the interfaith peace movement has received endorsements from more than 30 religious leaders around the globe, including H.H. the Dalai Lama. She captivates us with stories of her adventures and mis-adventures in the "minefields" of ignorance and religious bigotry as, time and again, she discovers she must rely on the strength of her personal GPS: her Jewish faith and her willingness to be a stranger.
Producer/director of the prize-winning film, God and Allah Need to Talk, Ruth believes peaceful co-existence is definitely possible among Jews, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists and people of all faiths and traditions--atheists included.
