You Don't Have to Be Wrong for Me to Be Right
Finding Faith Without FanaticismBook - 2007
"We live in a world," says author Hirschfield, "where religion is killing more people than at any time since the Crusades." When it comes to fanaticism, Hirschfield is not speaking abstractly; he once embraced it. As a young man in the early 1980s, he left his family for a group of radical settlers on the West Bank. Now, he has renounced all such rigid delineations of people into totally right and totally wrong, entirely good and entirely evil. He seeks to build bridges among people of different faiths--and those with no faith at all. He is devoted to teaching inclusiveness, celebrating diversity, and delivering a message of acceptance--a forceful and indispensable antidote to the blind passions and willful ignorance that threaten us all. His book provides a pragmatic path to peace, understanding, and hope that appeals to the common wisdom of all religions.--From publisher description.
