In times of crisis, our faith is tested. What we thought was "solid ground" shifts, challenging us to rediscover our spiritual center. Believing that challenging times call for spiritual transformation, Protestant minister Bruce Epperly and Rabbi Lewis Solomon have partnered to plumb the wisdom of their respective religions to offer a vision for healing of ourselves and our world.

Drawing on the deepest insights of Judaism and Christianity, they present a vision of spirituality that welcomes questions and struggles; that believes we are created for wholeness and abundance, even though we live by scarcity and fear; that views life as a holy adventure in which every encounter reveals the divine for those who have eyes to see. In creative partnership, they bring together tradition and innovation, affirming that:

_ Life is good._ We are challenged to become creators, artists, and healers of ourselves and the world._ God_s love is a deep reality, stronger than fear or hate._ Life is surprising and adventurous, and pushes beyond tragedy toward new creation._ God is with us, inspiring, guiding, and comforting us in every situation._ Even in difficult times, we can choose to become partners with God in creating a world of beauty._ God is the infinite source of possibilities that enable us to face personal and national tragedy.

Deeply spiritual yet practical in orientation, Mending the World offers a life-transforming vision of spirituality and healing for people searching for a deeper understanding of their own faith traditions, and for seekers looking for a creative vision of spirituality. Includes suggestions for spiritual practices such as prayer, meditation, healing imagery.
