The great paradox of migration through the ages is that in the journeying out, we find, or are at least searching for, home. Mapping Faith does justice to this storied paradox, so formative for Jews, Christians and Muslims, by weaving together narrative, theology, scriptural reflection, poetry and art. The result is a compelling and very human celebration of traditioned faith in a world on the move.
Reading Mapping Faith affords any reader with so many truly accessible and engaging perspectives on migration in the Abrahamic religions. From dialogue partners to poets to theologians to artists, this collection has something to fascinate everyone. Mosques, synagogues, and churches, not to mention seminaries, all need this on their library shelves!
This is a fantastic, unique coming together of writings by people from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. It is thought-provoking, challenging and moving. It is personal as well as community focused and will serve as a crucial resource to encourage us all to critically think more about time, place, people, identity, home, faith and what those things mean for us all.
