KDL Description:

RELIGION MAL

“A Catholic theologian travels to India to study Hinduism, falls in love with a muslim woman and marries her. Highly recommend this well written, non-preachy book because Malkovsky’s spiritual journey allows him to see, experience and understand how people of all faiths experience God. Broadening our horizons and being able to imbibe valuable information to help us see the good in all religions is the take away message.”—Seema at KDL’s Richard L. Root Kentwood branch

Amazon Description:

God’s Other Children by Bradley Malkovsky is a charming spiritual travelogue that tells the tale of a Catholic religious scholar who goes to India to study Hinduism and winds up falling in love with and marrying a Muslim.

In the tradition of The Faith Club, Malkvosky, who holds a degree in Catholic theology, shares how his spiritual journey grew his faith, while raising questions about it that he had never considered, and how it changed his life in ways he could neverhave  imagined.

Inspiring and profound, God’s Other Children: Personal Encounters with Faith, Love, and Holiness in Sacred India offers a fascinating perspective on how people of all faiths encounter God. Author Bradley Malkovsky won the Huston Smith Publishing Prize for this manuscript from HarperOne.
