How to Be a Perfect Stranger : The essential religious etiquette handbook by Insights from a pioneering leader in world religion, on the intersections of the sacred and the secular. New in paperback! Explore our connections--as human beings with each other, as one nation with all other nations, as the human species with the whole of our environment--through the lens of faith. Katharine Jefferts Schori, presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church, examines these connections as she looks at the intersections of faith with the major issues of our day: How does faith speak to poverty, climate change, the economy, health care, and what is the faith response? How can believers from many faith traditions find common ground while honoring the Divine, serving one another, and creating deeper community? How do we best use the resources of faith to connect us to the hearts of our neighbors and to the heart of God? "Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, with her elegant, light touch, shows how an authentic Christianity demands a concern for, and an involvement with, thoroughly mundane issues such as ending poverty and hunger, providing health care, and dealing with climate change, gender equality, and crime. In her version of reality, everything is sacred except sin." --The Rt. Rev. Desmond Tutu
